Small union label for GCIU #583 printed at bottom left. Printed signature at bottom right corner of artwork, "EURSULA WHITE - WILLIAMS / 2003."

Multi-colored poster contains a reproduction of a mural titled "Stop Youth Violence in Oakland." The mural shows a young man at bottom center wearing an orange and blue jersey with "choose" and the number 18 on the back. The young man's face is split looking two directions. To the right are images of crime, death, and incarceration. To the left are images of education, family, and extracurricular activities. A yellow band across the top of the poster reads, "This Mural was dedicated to the lives lost to homicide in Oakland and is a testament to the creativity and healing power of youth." A wide yellow band across the bottom of the page contains statistics on deaths in Oakland, two quotes from community members, and an address for sending donations to the Oakland Youth Commission.
