Art and Culture are a powerful engine for political engagement.
Connecting Artists and Activists
It is time for progressive campaigns – especially those trying to reach Black, Latinx, AAPI, Indigenous, and young people – to involve artists at a much deeper level who can breathe life, hope, and representation into advocacy efforts. When campaigns and organizations partner with artists to tell authentic and compelling stories, they can win in the near-term and reshape the narrative landscape over the long-term.

"Artists are storytellers because you change hearts before you change minds. We show the ugly truths but in a way that is inspiring and compelling."
