Leaders from the Anti-Defamation League recently gathered in Washington DC for their annual Leadership Summit to discuss among other issues, the ongoing refugee crisis. We're so proud to have posters from our new We Were Strangers Too collection on display, adding to such an important conversation with art.

ADL’s National Leadership Summit, which was a gathering of hundreds of the League’s leaders and activists from across the country in Washington, D.C., delved into many significant issues, including the imperative to welcome refugees that face violence and displacement in their home countries. In a special panel on the Syrian refugee crisis, “FORCE TO FLEE: RESPONDING TO THE REFUGEE CRISIS,” ADL Leadership Summit attendees heard personal stories from refugees and advocates including Omar Hossino, Director of Public Relations and Outreach, Syrian American Council, Jen Smyers, Associate Director, Immigration and Refugee Policy, Church World Service, and Mindy Reinstein, Associate Director, ADL Government Relations, Advocacy & Community Engagement. ADL activists shared artwork with 90 Congressional offices as an evocative advocacy tool for in-person lobby meetings to urge Members to oppose rollbacks of America's refugee program.

It's been two months since the launch of our new book, Posters For A Green New Deal: 50 Removable Posters To Inspire Change! We've loved sharing our art and message with you and it's inspiring that our posters resonate at a time when big bold changes and global cooperation are needed most. Our book is a collaboration with Workman Publishing and 50 independent artists in support of Sunrise Movement, an organization working to slow climate change, and we'll continue to spread our message of art, activism and excitement for a Green New Deal into the future. Without further ado, here's what people are saying about our Green New Deal poster book, which can be purchased on our website and wherever books are sold. Thanks for all the love for our new book everyone!
