LMAKbooks+design is pleased to invite you to participate in the Give Voice Postcard Project, a grassroots, multi-state, arts advocacy initiative organized by Eileen Jeng. This project has the potential to change the current political landscape. 39 artists have created postcards to be sent to our Federal Senators and Representatives at their district addresses. By sending these postcards, our voices would be heard, and we could help protect the arts, culture, environment, women’s rights, our civil liberties, and other important issues. Give Voice will culminate in a revelatory exhibition of artist cards and works from July 20-22.
Proceeds from sales leading up to and through the exhibition in July would go towards the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), or Planned Parenthood–a cause of the artist’s choice.
For more information, including a list of Federal Senators and Representatives by state, a link to locate their district addresses, facts and figures, and sample letters, please go to neumeraki.com/give-voice/.
The postcards are sold in packs of 10, along with a blank card and stamps, at neumeraki.com/store as well as at LMAKbooks+design. Packs of assorted postcards are available upon request. If you already have postcards, please grab those and write. Our voices need to be heard!
