  10. Today, the National Education Association is launching their campaign “Dreamers Welcome.” They’re asking community to share my newest Butter Fly design. 
The inspiration for this design was to stand in solidarity with dreamers and for them to know that there is a community of people who care and stand with them. Their story is a beautiful and positive story, of resiliency of the human spirit.And starting today, NEA is hosting a national call-in day (1-866-632-6057) to encourage educators and others to call their senators and encourage them to support DREAMers, their families and the comprehensive bill. Please share this image with all of your friends and family !! 1 year ago
  11. For this years Netroots Nation in San Jose, I’m going to be on a panel discussion called: Artists for Justice: How Artists are Transforming the Narrative on Immigration and Equality. If you’re at NN this year, be sure to come by the panel and keep an eye out for other events I’ll be hosting with Culture Strike through out the weekend. 
"The migrant rights movement is rich with artists and producers who are producing culture that reach audiences beyond the bounds of what community organizing and policy-based organizing can do. Visual artists, designers, coders, rappers, emcees, street artists, musicians, poets and performers are increasingly working together to form a cultural front that speaks out for a fair and just immigration policy. From theater productions to creative online apps to the use of the monarch butterfly symbol, art is a powerful and undeniable tool in the migrant struggle. Come hear how organizers and artists are employing cultural strategy and online tools to activate innovative art that shifts hearts and minds around immigration. We will discuss case studies and successful models of cultural organizing and cultural strategy."  1 year ago
  12. This poster intends to educate youth of color about local food production and urban farming, while encouraging people living in urban communities to reclaim vacant lots for producing their own food. 
At a time when the dominant messages around food encourage us to eat “fast” and “cheap,” positive and alternative messages are of major importance in changing our diets and making statement about the world we seek to create. To see this poster and many others at my website Favianna.com 1 year ago
