Pendergrass is inviting participants to bring signs as well as wear cultural outfits, police uniform, T-shirts or any other way they would like to represent how you feel. His goal is to create conversation and we may even capture community suggestions for resolutions.

Pendergrass plans to display the images and video in an exhibit at some point.
