“Those who love peace must learn to organize as effectively as those who love war.” #MartinLutherKingJr
The birth of #BlackPanther in 1966 may have been the first mainstream closeup of #blackculture in #comicbooks but the independent wave of #protestart has been —and continues to be—the longstanding bridge between community resilience, policy education, and progress. This weekend’s #BlackComicBookFestNYC was a powerful reminder of the ways in which scripted entertainment—the stories we choose to tell, advocate for, and amplify—can accelerate organizing and educating around policy change. May we continue to honor the grassroots efforts that drive us as individuals, industries, and as a society forward.

Without them, there would have been no Freedom Riders, no March on Washington, no Civil Rights Movement. Ahead of #MLKDay and the #WomensMarch2020, remember the names and work of the women of will who defined a generation and a movement.

Fresh off Virginia’s historic ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment and Elizabeth Warren’s defiant command of stage at the Democratic primary debate in Iowa, #JamiaWilson and #AmberTamblyn led an igniting conversation last night around community resilience and authentic allyship in today’s ever-evolving ecosystem of intersectional feminism.
From the poignant to the pointed, the best quotes of the night highlighted that the pervasiveness of white privilege, the proclivity of abuse of power, and the frequency with which some men dismiss, objectify, and assume credit for female originality are all age-old struggles unique to the female experience. How we define the process of survival, of granting agency to the rising tide of rage and intuition amid status quo injustice and inequality will determine which side of history gets remembered. We’re willing to bet on the women’s wave and #Election2020 is undoubtedly our best platform yet.

What’s wrong with this picture?!
According to a recent article in W Magazine, in 2019, #womendirectors accounted for 1.7 billion in box office revenue. Yet, the Academy still isn’t banking on #femalefilmmakers, once again shutting critically-acclaimed #womeninfilm out of the directorial category. In its 92-year history, the award has gone to only one woman (and only four men of color).
Shreds of hope in traditionally male-dominated categories? Hildur Guðnadóttir for Best Original Score and Greta Gerwig for Best Adapted Screenplay. May the power of the pen preserve what’s left of Hollywood’s integrity.

Fresh off a great collaborative chat this AM with New Street Advisors, we're diving into some of our key takeaways from Yahoo Finance's All Markets Summit.
With a closeup on generational opportunities in today's ever-evolving workplace ecosystem, the relevance of intergenerational dialogues around corporate responsibility, financial literacy, open-source data, and philanthropic outreach navigate the road to systemic innovation. But, the real question is: who is the source of said changes?! It's no secret that millennials bring elevated expectations to the table, but if we combine those high company culture standards with multigenerational coalition-building across sectors of industry, we're actively building the best environment in half a century for the American worker and rethinking the future of sustainable business. As Barbara Humpton, U.S. CEO of Seimans puts it, we're creating "a B2S model: business-to-society."

An interstellar start to fall at Bushwick Film Festival!
Now in its 12th wave, highlights included panels on sustainability, the future of media and tech, women changing the game, the sound of story,#latinx representation, and conversations with Tribeca Film Institute, , VICE and NOVA l PBS plus a diverse slate of #films exploring identity.
One of our favorite #quotes came from #director Kristian Mercado, a powerful reminder to keep showing up, even if you see and experience the world a little bit differently.

In order to create impact fiction that speaks to real-world issues, it's vital to understand the backstory and last week’s deep-dive into UNGA programming was the perfect setting.
Fresh off the #climatestrike and with a focus on the need for intergenerational dialogues to mobilize more balanced policy options in the public and private sector around the #sdgs, our first stop was United Nations Foundation x Mashable’s Social Good Summit. Celebrating ten years of impact with idea streams ranging from corporate responsibility, indigenous youth movements, grassroots organizing, sustainable fashion, and public art, we even sampled #vrcinema on Fiji's climate crisis and ads from Pfizer on the efficacy of vaccines in sub-Saharan Africa.
The takeaway? Saving the world starts with all things climate, and it'll take every generation, actively banding together, to achieve a sustainable future.

Obama once again reminding us of the audacity to hope...
Regardless of what side of the aisle you choose to sit on, one thing is certain: America is in need of a policy change. If there's anything we can collectively walk away with in light of recent events, it's how art and community have the unique ability to heal, motivate and mobilize America as a nation towards systemic change. May we honor the victims and their families in the stories we choose to tell.

Michelle and I grieve with all the families in El Paso and Dayton who endured these latest mass shootings. Even if details are still emerging, there are a few things we already know to be true.
First, no other nation on Earth comes close to experiencing the frequency of mass shootings that we see in the United States. No other developed nation tolerates the levels of gun violence that we do. Every time this happens, we’re told that tougher gun laws won’t stop all murders; that they won’t stop every deranged individual from getting a weapon and shooting innocent people in public places. But the evidence shows that they can stop some killings. They can save some families from heartbreak. We are not helpless here. And until all of us stand up and insist on holding public officials accountable for changing our gun laws, these tragedies will keep happening.
Second, while the motivations behind these shootings may not yet be fully known, there are indications that the El Paso shooting follows a dangerous trend: troubled individuals who embrace racist ideologies and see themselves obligated to act violently to preserve white supremacy. Like the followers of ISIS and other foreign terrorist organizations, these individuals may act alone, but they’ve been radicalized by white nationalist websites that proliferate on the internet. That means that both law enforcement agencies and internet platforms need to come up with better strategies to reduce the influence of these hate groups.
But just as important, all of us have to send a clarion call and behave with the values of tolerance and diversity that should be the hallmark of our democracy. We should soundly reject language coming out of the mouths of any of our leaders that feeds a climate of fear and hatred or normalizes racist sentiments; leaders who demonize those who don’t look like us, or suggest that other people, including immigrants, threaten our way of life, or refer to other people as sub-human, or imply that America belongs to just one certain type of people. Such language isn’t new – it’s been at the root of most human tragedy throughout history, here in America and around the world. It is at the root of slavery and Jim Crow, the Holocaust, the genocide in Rwanda and ethnic cleansing in the Balkans. It has no place in our politics and our public life. And it’s time for the overwhelming majority of Americans of goodwill, of every race and faith and political party, to say as much – clearly and unequivocally.
#TBT to last week’s sit down with the research leads at USC’s Media Impact Project on best practices for data capture and impact campaign design for #ProbableCause.
Fresh off the second wave of #DemDebates, we see the power and potential in sourcing non-partisan initiatives to help drive intergenerational voter turnout in the 2020 election cycle.
Special thanks to Erica Rosenthal and Erica Watson-Curie for their insights.
