Words from the Founder:
Metalsmiths for Change was created overnight, yet has always been a dream; a dream to see the masses acknowledging and taking action against the bias and racism aimed at the Black community. I want to sincerely thank the artists who dedicated time and materials to recognize and honor the precious Black lives lost to police brutality. The initiative it took to kick off the first set of Solidarity auctions in such a short time frame was remarkable, and I couldn't be more proud of these artists for joining forces to help benefit the Black community. The power of a creative collective is nothing less than extraordinary!
This page intends to:
- Amplify Black voices through art and advocacy
- Fight to dismantle all forms of racism and violence against the people of color
- Donate 100% of proceeds from auctions to charities that support racial and social justice
- Be transparent about donations by documenting all donations and providing receipts for the public here.
