Painting for a purpose in Baton Rouge
BATON ROUGE- BREC along with the Walls Project partnered together in an effort to complete another mural in the city.
A call for volunteers, with or without, experience in painting were encouraged to attend.
Around 200 volunteers answered the call.
Megan Simone, a native of Baton Rouge, says she thinks events like this help make communities stronger and perhaps cut down on some of the violence.
"If they were here being involved in this painting of the murals, that leaves them off of the street which lessens their chances of being involved in an accident or in violent actions," she said.
The Walls Project says they hope to finish their 20th mural by the end of the year.
