MLK Community Mural Project had an advisory board meeting on May 5 2016 with RAD. RAD stands for the Regional Asset District and they give out as much as $100 million dollars to organizations. We were able to have an advisory board meeting with them as well as a small mural paint session! See the pictures below!
