OHIO — Spectrum News 1 brings you the first of our Voices for Change series, where activists, leaders, and community members share what has brought them to action and how addressing racial discrimination will create a better world for everyone.

John Lanzador is a Cincinnati artist and educator who wanted to support his city through his art.

Just after reopening from the stay-at-home order, MiCA 12/v had to again shut down due to damage from protests. The windows were smashed and broken and had to be boarded up. Landzor decided to create paintings on the boards to send positive images of hope, community and justice.

Since then, he has been contacted by others who were inspired to help.
