HE+ART exists to encourage and equip Christian artists to be an intentional voice for God’s kingdom through creative media and art. Among the members of HE+ART are a young couple who worked under one of the worst slumlords in California, JD Home Rentals. They witnessed the oppression that was happening to their neighbors. They could not ignore the heartaches, tears and pain from those that live under slumlords. They felt a strong calling from God to use their gifts as artists to be a voice for the voiceless. Working alongside other artists, neighbors and community organizations, they are fighting the slumlord industry in Fresno.
Mission Statement: Create awareness and advocate for neighborhoods through the use of art and multimedia.
The only way that the slumlord situation in Fresno will change is through public support. City officials have to see that the public wants things to change and slumlords have to see that the public will not tolerant their business practices any more. Being part of this movement will be instrumental in obtaining justice for our neighbors throughout our city.
Advocate >> Create art and multimedia content that sheds a light on the injustice that is inflicting our neighbors. Through the use of art and multimedia, we are being a voice for the voiceless.
Act >> Start a movement that will challenge the slumlord industry in our city by:
Pray >> “Do not exploit the poor because they are poor”-Proverbs 22:22
Slumlords actively steal from low income families and deny them their rights. We believe that God cares for those that are being oppressed and will bring justice to those that abuse their neighbors. We ask that you will join us in prayer.
