On October 5, communities across the country will bring families into the streets to press for dignity and respect for immigrant families. On October 8 at 12:30pm, tens of thousands will gather on the National Mall at 10th Street to celebrate Camino Americano: the Concert for Immigrant Dignity and Respect before marching to the U.S. Capitol to send a message to the House of Representatives: Get Immigration Reform Done; and Get it Done Now. For our families, for our communities, for our country.
Join CultureStrike as we leverage the power of ART and CULTURE to shine light on the growing movement for migrant rights. Migrant communities cannot wait any longer. Not one more family should be torn apart by these senseless practices.
As you prepare to take to the streets on October 5th, use the how-to guide, templates and video provided below to create fun, colorful and eye-catching visuals and signage that will help us send a united message across the nation – Keep Families Together.
After you make art, please take a picture showing off your creations and upload them to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with the tag: #art4
Let’s build a public gallery of community-made art.

From my online art store: This is Planet Earth
The imagery for this print was inspired by my time in Vancouver in 2009 and explores the themes of collaboration, growth, and community. The person at the lower part of the drawing is holding a life force in her hand and she is making sure it circulates to others in the group.
When it came time to name the piece, I wanted to allude to the land, and to the planet itself. So in keeping with my practice of naming my pieces after my favorite 80’s songs, the title became “This Is Planet Earth.”

Solitary Confinement is Torture.
Here is the latest about the health of one of the undocumented youth who was part of the action of the border: Maria Peniche is on suicide watch in solitary confinement. What happened to her is exactly what experts say happens to people in solitary.
You can help get the word out. Bring the Dreamers home. No more solitary confinement, for anyone.
Please follow the Facebook page of the National Immigrant Youth Alliance for an upcoming live recording of Maria.
If you are an artist, considering making an art piece in solidarity with the Dream 9
Politicans and conservatives are waging an all out war on women, our bodies, our access to health, our right to birth control, and our right to free, accessible and safe abortion. Everywhere you turn, the right wing is attempting to further limit and hinder our access to our reproductive rights through anti-contraceptive measures.
I am fed up. Patriarchy is destructive to society, it’s a form of violence against women, and there is no place for it in contemporary culture. We have to call it out when it happens.
I decided it was time for some slut positivity and some major ass kicking of these conservative, woman-hating men.
You can pick these up from my online store.

Racism and white supremacy are prevailing forces in our society and continue to cause inequality, suffering, and institutionalized violence in communities of color. I developed this poster for the International Day for the Elimination of Racism, March 21st. The characters in the piece are singing and working collectively to combat racism.
This piece celebrates a groundbreaking Black and Latino Summit that took place in Los Angeles in 2008. The images depict the parallels between the social injustices faced by both Brown and Black people in the United States. Both communities face high teenage pregnancy rates, high drop-out rates, high unemployment rates, and unjust incarceration.
