Street Art fans are typically more in touch with the needs of communities and are fierce advocates of the rights of all people, so BSA is very excited to start this post by offering you with the opportunity to give money to Human Rights Watch – So, 1. GIVE to HRW first, and  2. Look at great pics second.
