Zygote Press and Refresh Collective work on “Drop the Lead” Campaign

Community Policing and the 3rd District visited the wonderful people at Zygote Press on E 30th to learn how to silk screen with the youth from Refresh Collective. Zygote Press is teaching Refresh Collective how to silk screen as part of their “Drop the Lead” campaign, a campaign that hopes to end gun violence and draw attention to the lead paint poisoning in Cleveland. CPD officers worked side by side with the youth while silk screen printing. Thank you Zygote and Refresh for bringing us all together!
