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!

          Meet the Maker: Maggie Stern Stitches feminist icon socks!

          June 13, 2019

          A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step -- in the right socks! Meet Maggie Stern, sole proprietor of Maggie Stern Stitches, based in Massachusetts, USA. She designs socks ornamented with her own drawings of notable women and we've got them in the shop at CAN! From Rosie the Riveter and Virginia Woolf to the notorious RBG, the socks look great, make us feel empowered and the quality is amazing. And we're not just saying that! One of our customers called them "the first pair of socks she's worn in years, and one of the most comfortable pairs of socks she's ever owned." That's a good thing, because we've still got a lot of marching to do! We hope you all enjoy our post about Maggie. ~Team CAN
