Townsend Harris High School students unveil first inclusive safety mural design in collaboration with Queens artist

Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz and Assemblywoman Nily Rozic joined students of Townsend Harris High School in Kew Gardens Hills on Monday, April 12, for the unveiling of a mural design and painting project led by Queens artist Anthony Posada.

The first-ever community-created Inclusive Safety Mural is a project by genEquality, a research-driven nonprofit organization focused on activating equality and inclusion through art and culture. The Inclusive Safety Mural Series (ISMS) brings together artists, students, educators and residents to collaboratively design and create murals that promote inclusive safety, according to the organization. The initiative’s first five murals — one in each borough of New York City — are being unveiled throughout April, which is Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month.
