Tucson Be Kind mosaic unveiling at Tucson City Council Chambers


“The speakers include Councilman Steve Kozachik and Jeannette Mare, someone from the Jewish History Museum, Black community, Muslim community, Bishop, Richard Elias (District 5 Pima County Supervisor), Sacred Space (contemplative), Mary DeCamp, Chief of Police Chris Magnus, LGBT community.” – per Steve K.  He is a 2 term Councilman representing Ward 6, and is up for re-election in Nov. 2017.

More from Steve’s 8/21/17 newsletter: “Through Jeannette Mare’s Ben’s Bells Project, Tucson is the epicenter of showing that we as a community are built on the ethos of kindness. M&C has demonstrated that through policy, such as adopting the Charter for Compassion.

This week we will be unveiling a new addition to City Hall – designed and built by volunteers over at the Ben’s Bells studios and across the community. Here’s a sneak peak:

It will be the first thing you see when you enter council chambers. Paid for by the Kaimas Foundation and constructed in love, what I’m calling the “Arizona Bell” will be unveiled in a Be Kind rally outside council chambers this Thursday at 12:00 p.m. Please come.”
