Lead to Life
Lead to Life is transforming weapons into shovels for ceremonial-tree plantings at sites that have been impacted by violence or carry spiritual significance across Atlanta and Oakland. ˧

Inspired by Mexican artist Pedro Reyes and an ancient lineage of Swords to Plowshares creators, we choose to locate our alchemy and cultural healing work in the US - the heart of imperialism and violence against people and planet. ˧

Intention in medicine is defined as the healing process of a wound. Our intention through Lead to Life is to transform that which kills into that which makes life - to facilitate an alchemical healing process that can physically transform both our weapons and our imaginations. ˧
