Since my TEDx was posted I’ve been getting so many insane media requests. ABC, CNN, CBS, do you want a tv show, a book deal. But my talk was about luck, legacy, and who gets access to media and I know that changing our mass media will not happen by elevating just one narrative. Will you help me by sharing your story here:
We, the people, still believe that our obligations as Americans are not just to ourselves, but to all posterity. We will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. Some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires, and crippling drought, and more powerful storms. The path towards sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. But America cannot resist this transition; we must lead it. We cannot cede to other nations the technology that will power new jobs and new industries – we must claim its promise. That is how we will maintain our economic vitality and our national treasure – our forests and waterways; our croplands and snowcapped peaks. That is how we will preserve our planet, commanded to our care by God. That’s what will lend meaning to the creed our fathers once declared.
On September 21, artists, technologists, activists, and students will join forces at Harvard’s Northwest Science Building to build art interventions that fight for suffrage, condemn bribery, and celebrate the political power of expression!
Please join us online during the hack or in person at our flash exhibition Sunday September 23rd at 5pm. RSVP here!
This is an event I’ve been organizing for awhile. It’s the second Art Hack Day ever, and the first time we hack for change in partnership with unPAC, a national campaign to get big money out of politics. I would love to see you there.
