Watch: Female Artists Take Their Fight Against Bigotry on the Road

Three women of color—Tatyana Fazlalizadeh, Jessica Sabogal and Melinda James—traveled from Los Angeles to Albuquerque, N.M., to fight what in America is becoming the new normal.

And they are using their art to fight back.

From May 23 to June 5, the women took a road trip, stopping specifically in small towns to make murals that were anti-white supremacy, anti-misogyny and anti-xenophobia. The goal was to be confrontational with their work.

“I want people to feel uncomfortable, I want them to feel angry. I want them to be like, ‘What is this?’ Because that’s what disruption means,” Fazlalizadeh said. “I’m trying to challenge the norm. I’m trying to challenge society. I’m trying to push society into a new direction.”
