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.

We'd love to tell you about Annie Riker, an artist out of Asheville, North Carolina. She's a surface designer and illustrator who over the years has contributed her national park posters and sticker designs to CAN. This spring her Appalachian Trail design inspired two See America product launches, Merrell trail running shoes and Wyeth hats! Annie is a former Creative Director for the NPCA and we're so grateful that her national park expertise, love of nature, creative spirit and illustration skills landed her in our community where her work can do so much good. You can see Annie's designs online at CAN and be sure to check out her Merrell trail running shoes and Wyeth hat project, too, all helping support Earthjustice organization. We know you'll enjoy reading all about Annie!

One part inspiration and one part commemoration, the new shoe collection helps support Earthjustice organization. Integral to this project are the amazing poster designs from artists Brooke FischerJonathan Scheele and Annie Riker, and we hope you really love reading the story of how this project came to be.
