Justice for Reefa

The Dream Defenders, through its MTazamo arts project, helped organize an exhibit last night in Miami in honor of Israel “Reefa” Hernandez, who was tasered to death by police in August. The event, held at LMNT Miami, featured works by the late graffiti artist and his supporters — including the above tribute to Reefa by Lola Blu. You can find more images from last night at the Dream Defenders’ Instagram.
