IN THE WILD: Our New Book, What REALLY Makes America Great

What REALLY Makes America Great? Our new book blowing up everywhere, that's what! Thanks, everyone -- the launch was a blast and the past few weeks have been a really fun ride. Here are a couple highlights and photos, and we'll keep adding as they roll in!

Nikk, Aditi and Yaddi had book signings, and Yaddi even got his son in on the action!

    A bunch of our friends spotted What REALLY Makes America Great in the New & Recommended section at Powell's Books in Portland. And artists autographed copies of the book at bookstores nationwide!

      We've had some awesome photos and videos sent in from contributing artists across the country!

        Van Jones was inspired to tweet about us, we were in Fast Company Magazine, and we published a What REALLY Makes America Great 2019 wall calendar, which is getting rave reviews!

          Thanks again to everyone who continues to make What REALLY Makes America Great a huge success, and please check out both the book and calendar! Sales support The DreamCorps, a social justice accelerator organization. Happy shopping from all of us at Team CAN!

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.
