The Los Angeles nonprofit, Classroom of Compassion, will be traveling from
their studio space in Burbank, CA to Nashville, TN to honor the 6 lives lost at
The Covenant School on Monday, March 27th. They will be creating six public
altars, each of them dedicated to the six individuals lost: Evelyn Dieckhaus,
Hallie Scruggs and William Kinney, all 9 years old, and Cynthia Peak, 61,
Katherine Koonce, 60, and Mike Hill, 61.

As part of this community healing space, Classroom of Compassion will also
be providing on-site public arts programming to help the community process
and come together after this devastating attack. Visitors to the Nashville
memorial space will have the opportunity to leave flowers (provided onsite for
free), write dedications or letters of condolence, and offer compassion to
The Covenant School community by paying their respects to the 6 victims lost.


In February, they helped create a community memorial at Star Ballroom
Dance Studio in Monterey Park, CA that honored the 11 victims lost at Star
Ballroom Dance Studio during a lunar new years celebration. They spent all
month onsite holding space with the community and offering creative arts
processing to all visitors to the space.

Classroom of Compassion co-founders, David Maldonado and Noah Reich,
have been traveling the country this past year creating public memorial
spaces at the sites of deadly mass shootings to give faces to those lost to
senseless violence.
