Faith [In]Action? and Hands Up Don't Shoot HER — Presented by United's Center for Arts, Faith & Culture, Intermedia Arts and Obsidian Arts, these complementary exhibitions held at two locations are inspired by Black Lives Matter. At United, Faith [In]Action? examines the role of faith communities in policing systems. At Intermedia Arts, Hands Up Don't Shoot HER reflects on the value of the lives of black women.
