Come Help Paint This Mural


Making A Difference Foundation (MADF) is hosting a special art event for Tacoma’s Eastside community. Not only will there be free food and music, but all in attendance will be able to help paint a new mural, Muted Voices, on MADF’s building located at 3708 E. McKinley Ave. The event will be held Memorial Day, Monday, May 29, 2023, from 10 am to 3 pm. This event is open to all ages. Volunteers are still needed; anyone interested in helping can go to MADF’s website at to sign up.

The mural,
Muted Voices, will focus on racial and cultural diversity, equity, and social justice by representing different people of the BIPOC community and how they have been historically marginalized and held back from having a true voice within the community due to systemic racism. It will also remind this diverse community and others to speak out and let themselves be heard.

According to Ahndrea Blue, MADF’s President/CEO, “We really want to improve, inspire, and beautify the local McKinley area neighborhood, which happens to be where we operate the Eloise’s Cooking Pot Food Bank. By creating this mural, we hope to create a talking piece between neighbors and community leaders, something that will create an open dialogue relating to diversity, cultural differences, equity, and inclusion; topics that will be expressed within this beautiful piece of art.”

The mural is being funded by a grant given to MADF from the City of Tacoma’s Community Arts Projects and with the mural design by artist, Devona Roy. Any questions regarding this event can be directed to 253-212-2778; Visit MADF’s website at for more information.
