With the midterm elections almost here, we as a country are getting our first opportunity since the 2016 election to be heard at the ballot box. We have a chance to flip the House blue and put a major check on the current administration. Which is why we’re partnering with Swing Left, to shine a light on the 78 "winnable" Swing Districts and inspire everyone to volunteer in these districts to get out the vote in the midterms, because there is so much at stake.
Between now and the election on November 6th, 2018, we’re seeking travel postcards that depict each of the 78 Swing Districts (listed below). We’re inviting artists and designers from in or near these districts to celebrate what is unique and wonderful about each district (such as hometown heroes or landmarks), as a creative way to encourage volunteers to visit their closest district with Swing Left to knock on voters’ doors, which is the most effective way to drive turnout. Click here to find your closest Swing District.
Creative Action Network is a marketplace for social impact design work covering a range of progressive issues. All designs that meet the requirements listed below will be published as prints and select designs will be made into apparel and other home goods. You will receive 40% of all profits and 10% will be donated to our non-profit cause partners.
Proceeds from this campaign will support Swing Left, a political group working to win a Democratic majority in the House of Representatives in 2018 by building a grassroots network of volunteers and donors in targeted Swing Districts across the United States. All submitted artwork may be used by Swing Left in their online & offline campaign materials.
Let's hear it for artists! To help kick off June Pride we asked Kyle Parker to share his thoughts on building confidence, marketing his work and staying authentic to himself as an artist. Happy reading and please join us here every week for an interview with a Creative Action Network artist!
