It's been a big year for us! We we've been busy as honeybees at CAN in 2018 and wanted to share some of the highlights with you. Huge thanks to all our artists for making everything possible, and to all of our non-profit partners for working so hard every day for the causes we care about!
Whew! We could go on and on, but it’s time to catch our breath for five minutes until the fun starts up again in the new year. THANK YOU to our incredible community of artists who volunteer their time and talents every day, and to our inspiring community of non-profit partners who fight day in and day out to make the world a better place. We couldn’t do any of this without you! Here’s to 2019 being prosperous and creative for everyone in our wonderful community!
Our Green New Deal campaign premiered on March 14, 2019 in Washington D.C., at Bold V. Old, a daylong convening where speakers including Stacey Abrams, Cory Booker and Kamala Harris discussed bold ideas for our biggest problems, including the Green New Deal. On March 16 In Oakland, CA, Creative Action Network joined artists and activists at the Green New Deal Create-A-Thon, where youth artists from the Sunrise Movement and others worked on new designs for the collection. Youth activist Rio says that after seeing videos of Greta Thunberg leading student climate strikes in Europe, “me and my sister were empowered to make some sort of difference.” Rio and his sister Maddy recently rose to internet stardom when their student group confronted Senator Feinstein about the Green New Deal a few weeks ago. Maddy says she is now “trying to make my voice be more heard, go to marches, and more creative stuff, definitely!”
