L.O.V.E is the Answer Creator Appears on County Conversations Podcast
Bucks County officials, police officers and community members have been painting murals with a specific purpose for the past couple of years.
The purpose is L.O.V.E. is the Answer, a movement started by A.J. Ali whose goal is to improve community-police relations. The movement began when A.J. was stopped “one too many times” by police and decided to make a movie, ‘Walking While Black: L.O.V.E. is the Answer.’
Murals in Morrisville Borough and Falls Township were created in recent years with one proposed for Bristol Borough by District Attorney Matt Weintraub in 2021. The three renderings proposed to Council Monday were created by then Harry S. Truman High School senior Carolina Gonzalez-Espino.
In this episode of Bucks County Conversations, you’ll hear from A.J. about his journey to finding L.O.V.E. and creating a movement. You’ll also hear from Commissioner Diane Ellis-Marseglia and District Attorney Matt Weintraub about how the movement started in Bucks County and why we use paint to spread the word.
