I hope you are here to donate & be a part
of a large, loud & clear anti-racist message.
As a society we’ve evolved past owning our neighbors. I respect the history of our country and do not wish to live in a place where we can’t have differing opinions. The money spent locally in Eldon & Lake of the Ozarks by tourists benefits all local residents. I don’t want visitors to this area to leave with the impression that Eldon is stuck in a place of ignorance, hate, & racism. In spite of anyone’s best historical argument the Confederate flag cannot be separated from what it represented during the Civil War, Slavery. This is not what this area is about; we wave at our neighbors, empty our pockets at cancer fundraisers & only raise taxes for schools & police officers. I’m proud of that. I also want anyone who doesn’t look like me to feel welcome here. Love, not Hate.
You might be asking yourself “why a billboard and not direct aide to a tangible problem?” Here’s why: voices and image matter. A voice for equality & love should be just as loud.
This fundraising goal will cover artwork, vinyl & fees to purchase a billboard south of the El Rancho / Eldon exit for six months. It will read, “Equality, bigger than hate”.
