EQUAL JUSTICE STUDIOS: OUR MISSION

Capturing History. Empowering Equality. Elevating Humanity.

Equal Justice Studios spearheads various fundraising efforts in light of the George Floyd Murder, the Corey Jones Murder, and the social and equal justice movements the country is currently experiencing. Equal Justice Studios is engaged in fundraising for multiple causes,  as well as other groups/organizations as EJS pursues its mission of seeking to amplify the message of social injustice and raising funds to support causes that seek to “make a difference and enact change.”

THE COREY JONES CONNECTION
 
Writer/Producer/Director/Lyricist, Jeff Mustard is a South Florida (Delray Beach) based artist. Corey Jones was a well-known, well-liked, and respected artist/musician. There are many personal and professional (artistic) intersects between Mr. Mustard and Corey Jones’s family, namely, primarily, Ethan Dangerwing, a/k/a The Vulture. Witnessing the horrific tape of the George Floyd murder compelled Jeff Mustard to write the song “Enough.” Corey’s cousin, Ethan, The Vulture, a rapper, was immediately drawn to the project providing his exceptional talent and bringing the critical messaging of this vital song to life.  
 
Corey Jones Memorial Bronze/Sculpture Statue
In addition to raising funds for the groups noted herein, the song will hopefully bring attention to the fundraising efforts for a bronze/sculpture for Corey Jones. Our aim is to promote this project, not only in Delray Beach and South Florida but nationally. Our goal is to collect enough funds to produce a bronze (or a sculpture) of a similar and realistic nature represented in the accompanying pencil sketch artwork of Corey Jones while seated at his drum set.
 
Objective 1: Raise Funds for Statue

Estimated Amount, Current Budget Projection:  Cost/Bid To Be Provided By Artist

Includes Artist Fees, Materials, Shipping, Installation 

Objective 2: To identify an artist/sculptor – specifically in the field of “metal work” to produce a life-size metal, or bronze, Corey Jones Statue. Ideally, we seek an artist with extensive production/sculpture credits of national renown.

Objective 3:   Working with the City of Delray Beach, Jeff Mustard has identified a site/plot/pad for the Corey Jones Statue. The CJS has preliminarily been approved to be located in the heart of the City of Delray Beach. The proposed location of the statue is located in Pineapple Grove, on NE 2nd Avenue, at the North Side of the Entrance to Old School Square Park. The site/pad has unparalleled pedestrian and vehicle traffic, providing exceptional visibility and exposure of the Corey Jones Statue for members of the public.
