My Top 10 of 2022

I love to look back at the end of the year and list the 10 best things that happened. When I do this for C4AA, it’s honestly hard to choose.

Here are just 10 things we accomplished this year together, plus a couple of special treats below.

1. 2022 has shown me that there is hope.

So many people have picked up the fight against authoritarianism, disinformation and injustice and are finding creative and innovative ways to persevere and win.

2. We launched the Smithsonian Artistic Activism exhibition.

3. We trained over 450 people (4 times our past annual average!)

4. We helped people working on voting, climate, reproductive rights, LGBTQIA+ rights, health equity, restorative justice, and debt relief.

5. We distributed over 200 tools and resources.

6. We created our first Fellowship program.

7. We supported 23 voting actions ahead of the midterms in Georgia, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and other states.

8. We partnered with over 40 amazing organizations.

9. Our C4AA family grew!

10. We reached over 1200 people in our fantastic online series, Revolutionizing Activism.

Some treats I want to share with you:

Thank you

As an organization devoted to helping people use their own creativity to make profound change in the world, I’m so pleased that we’ve been able to help many hundreds of people do exactly that. I have so much gratitude for the brilliant C4AA team, our network of partners and collaborators, and you.

If you can donate to help us unlock our anonymous donor match by the end of the year, wonderful! We also have some especially fun donor gifts this year.

Thank you for being a part of this.
