“Be Heard” Speaking up can cause a chain reaction and make a great change in the world. Considering this, there will always be at least one person to listen or to lead the change. Our mural illustrates this message by showing the man on top of the podium, as he influences the large group of people surrounding him. As a whole, we enjoyed working together to express the overall purpose of the mural. We also enjoyed coming up with “chainge” as a play on words, indicating the chain reaction.
