Created by community members – Uriel Alejandro Contreras Jiménez, Dania García, Jesus Morquecho, & Karina Lizeth Andalon.
Displayed on Lideres Campesinas’ vehicles traveling throughout the Sacramento, CA area.
This project centers around two electric vehicles, wrapped in art and slogans related to community unity, the importance of getting vaccinated to fight against COVID-19, and, being resilient in the face of the disease. The vehicles are taken to community events, as well as COVID testing and vaccination sites, where they are used for community outreach, and as backdrops for photos and information tables.
