Join the Backbone Solidarity Brigade network of autonomous multi-affiliated affinity groups deploying artful activist tactics in solidarity with local and national causes.   

Engage with Backbone Campaign in the praxis of artful activism and reflection of collective purpose, goals, strategy and vision.

The tools and capacity we share with communities include: 

Artful Activism props like Trump Bobble Heads; a 16’ Racism-is-the-Elephant-in-the-Room inflatable elephant; a 28’ 28th Amendment & 210’ Constitution Preamble celebrating “We the People” (juxtaposed to “We the Corporations”) to end Corporate Personhood; fleet of inflatables, including globes, salmon, orca, Statue of Liberty. Sign up to borrow imagery here.

Banner kits with changeable messages and lettering, so groups can get their message out during day time traffic commutes, at marches, and other spots - loudly, in a highly visible way. Order yours by clicking here.

Night time visibility tools - light projections on buildings using GOBOs and LED light panels to spell out a message on a freeway overpass, the side of a building, or other visible location. Want to take action in your community!? Let us know HERE.

    Beyond Inclusion, Beyond Empowermentby Leticia Nieto Psy.D. and co-authors, brings a long-awaited breakthrough to the fields of liberation and cultural studies. Dr. Nieto offers a powerful analysis of the psychological dynamics of oppression and privilege, and shows readers how to develop the skills that can promote social justice for themselves and those around them.

    We are honored to host Leticia Nieto for a two-day training on the Beyond Inclusion, Beyond Empowerment anti-oppression methodology on January 5-6, 2018.  Workshop starts at 9 am on Friday and ends at 5 pm on Saturday, on Vashon Island.
