Join the next cohort of Education Amplifiers for the 2018-2019 school year to bring art, dialogue, and cross-cultural understanding into your classroom.
This fall we are launching our next non-partisan art campaign, We the Future. This program will amplify young leaders who are building organizations and movements across the country, that are drafting and passing new legislation, fighting for voting rights, and leading efforts on criminal justice reform, immigration rights, gun reform, disability justice, queer and trans rights, literacy, women’s rights, and climate justice. In partnership with artists such as Shepard Fairey, Kate Deciccio, Rommy Torrico and Munk One, these visuals, and the storytelling surrounding them will be shared with you to engage students in dialogue, inspire them to take action, and reshape the national narrative. We will be distributing artwork, and accompanying teaching tools outlining paths to real-world action, to 20,000 or more classrooms during the 2018-2019 school year. Join Amplifier and 20,000 educators across the country to tell a new story about the future of America.

Retake Our Democracy is a grassroots organization, co-founded by Roxanne Barber and Paul Gibson of Santa Fe, which is attempting to Engage, Educate, and Activate the 99%. Paul and Roxanne will be in Gallup on Friday August 24 at 1:00pm (until about 2:30). We will be meeting at Camille’s to discuss Strategies for the 2018 Election, 2019 Legislative Priorities and the formation of a Legislative Response Team. I know this is late notice and many of you are working at that time, but please come and join our conversation for all or part of the time if you can.
Regardless of whether or not you can make it on Friday, you can learn more about Retake on their website at Retake Our Democracy
. Also, if you haven’t done so already, please go the site and click on Speak Up New Mexico! TAKE THE LEGISLATIVE SURVEY!
I originally sent out the link to the survey in May and I know some of you have already completed it–Thank you! For those of you who haven’t, this is your opportunity to make your voice heard as to what you deem are the most important issues for the 2019 New Mexico Legislative Session. In addition, if you choose, you can sign up to participate on the Legislative Response Team (learn more about this at the end of the survey).
