Give Voice Postcards on table

Join Neumeraki and The Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation at The 8th Floor for an afternoon of activism and make your voice heard by writing postcards to Congress.

Help advocate for the protection of civil liberties and human rights issues that matter most to you – the arts, the rights of immigrants, women, and the LGBTQ community, healthcare, natural disaster relief, gun control regulation, or tax reform – using artist-designed postcards. Postcards, stamps, and federal officials’ district addresses will be provided.

Packs of postcards will also be available for purchase, the proceeds of which support an organization of the artist’s choice, including the National Assembly of State Art Agencies (NASAA), Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), or Planned Parenthood. Visitors are also welcome to bring their own postcards.

Participating Artists: Michael Alan, Trudy Benson, Jason Bereswill, Zoë Buckman and Natalie Frank, Amanda Church, Zoe Crosher, Kevin Curran, David Dixon, Amy Feldman, Ben Godward, Justin Brice Guariglia, Jane LaFarge Hamill, Young Sun Han, Rachel Hayes, Jason Lazarus, Shaun Leonardo, Greg Lindquist, Natasha Mayers, Riad Miah, Joe Nanashe, Katherine Newbegin, Clayton Porter, Nathlie Provosty, Armita Raafat, Luisa Rabbia, Erika Ranee, David Reed, Daniel Rich, Alexis Rockman, Rachel Selekman, Rudy Shepherd, Edra Soto, Meg Stein, Dannielle Tegeder, Karen Tompkins, Sebastian Vallejo, Julia von Eichel, and Saya Woolfalk.

The Give Voice Postcard Project is a grassroots, multi-state advocacy initiative that has the potential to change the current political landscape.

Neumeraki, founded by Eileen Jeng Lynch, collaborates with artists, galleries, and organizations on curatorial, consulting, writing, and editing projects.
