Gary Baseman + Studio stand and protest in solidarity with our colleagues and fans and the leaders and artists fighting against injustice and racism nationwide.
Following the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and the countless and many unrecorded cases of racism against Black people, Gary Baseman attended the protest in the Fairfax district on Sunday, May 31 and the peaceful demonstration on Tuesday, June 3 at the Los Angeles Mayor’s home to support the Black Lives Matter movement.
Like many other Americans, Gary (and Toby) took to the streets to protest against racial inequality, injustice, and straight-up racism.
Gary Baseman joins his voice to the petition by Black Lives Matter and “demands acknowledgment and accountability for injustice against black people, divestment in the police force, and investment in the health and prosperity of black communities across our nation.” You can also sign this petition and contribute to the BLM movement here.
Using his art and his platform, Baseman will continue channeling efforts to raise public awareness and to promote other specific demands, including participation in democracy by using people’s right to vote.
