Brought together in 1989 by the death of a friend from random gang violence, Earth Crew is a group of more than 20 youth began doing murals as a way of promoting non-violence. They have done projects for the 1990 Los Angeles Festival, Amnesty International, and a national sports convention in Chicago. In addition, their nine panels honoring Native Americans are now on reservations around the country. In 1991, at the invitation of the Mexican government, they created several murals in Mexico City with local youth art groups.
