An open platform to engage and inspire artists, activists, thinkers

Confront Art’s NFT project is an extension of the organization’s ‘SEEINJUSTICE’ series, which presented three impactful sculptures of John Lewis, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd by artist Chris Carnabuci. They debuted after 2020’s tragic events at New York City’s Union Square.

Justice Day was conceived as an open platform to engage and inspire artists, activists and thinkers to cooperate and co-create. It honors and commemorates the Civil Rights Act, which passed the first federal hate crime laws in the United States in 1968.

Andrew Cohen and Lindsay Eshelman, Co-Founders of Confront Art, commented the initiative:

We are constantly looking for innovative ways to support artists and charities. We are excited to bring together entertainment legends and emerging artists alike for a major movement for social justice and charity in the metaverse.

mintNFT provides a simple, safe, and social NFT experience

The live stream and collection will be available exclusively on mintNFT, a new platform that welcomes users without requiring crypto experience. The smart contract features unique videos of each NFT’s creation and guarantees its authenticity.

James Sun, Founder and CEO of mintNFT, noted:

NFTs are all about community building, but those communities cannot grow if people think engaging in NFTs will be too difficult or you need to have crypto. Projects like this one are too important to have barriers like that in place. We’re grateful to play a role to help break those barriers down so that all people can fully engage in a project that uplifts multicultural artists’ voices and benefits these valuable charities.

Terrence Floyd, Founder of We Are Floyd Org stated:

My brother’s death was a catalyst for change. We cannot let that change, and that momentum slow.

Dionne Warwick, singer and Goodwill ambassador agreed to include selections of her latest single ‘Power in the Name’ featuring Krayzie Bone in the NFT. She shared:

I’m thrilled to be using this new NFT technology to raise awareness and funds for social justice programs. I’m excited to be part of the SEEINJUSTICE campaign, using art and song in new ways to move forward progress and change.
