MAKE AMERICA SMART AGAIN

Make America Smart Again at the Crafted in LA Art Show

Last week was the opening of Crafted in LA, an exhibition featuring Studio Number One's art that was created for various social causes, including #MakeAmericaSmartAgain! Also, special thanks to our friends at League of Women Voters for coming out to the opening to educate the crowd.

If you're in Los Angeles, check out the gallery at Angel City Brewery before it comes down on April 1. In addition to the #MakeAmericaSmartAgain works, you’ll also be able to see other art by Studio Number One that was created for various marches, social and environmental causes, community projects, and much more!

Since the tragic shooting in Parkland, FL the angry student survivors have successfully pushed politicians to support gun control legislation and forced major businesses and advertisers to cut ties with the NRA. Additionally, they have organized events to encourage communities across the country to go out and make their voices heard about gun violence. Let’s stand with the students of Parkman by partaking in the National School Walkout on March 14th and March For Our Lives on March 24th!

Participating in these events is a way to stand up to not only gun violence, but to make it known that our schools should no longer be a danger zone. It is a way to express that this country needs proper changes when it goes to how gun control is handled. By going out and marching it helps project the message that enough is enough!

To support the cause, Studio Number One designed a collection of posters and art that can be downloaded for free. Print them for the upcoming march or post on your social media and make your voices heard!

What Can We Do About Gun Violence?

On a day typically reserved to celebrate love, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkman, Florida suffered the opposite. A 19-year-old gunman entered the school with a loaded AR-15 rifle, pulled the fire alarm, and began shooting into five classrooms. The tragedy resulted in the death of 17 students and adults. 

After the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012,  more than 400 people have been shot in over 200 school shootings. Many are asking what we can do to enact stricter gun control or preventative measures.

Here are a few actions that can be taken:

 JOIN

Everytown is an organization with more than 4 million members focused on ending gun violence with action. The website offers information about the movement, details on events in various communities, and helpful guides.

The Brady Campaign is one of the oldest organizations focused on gun control. Created in 1974 and renamed in 2001, their mission is to cut down gun deaths in half.

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America was founded in 2012 following the aftermath of the Sandy Hook shooting. Ran and monitored by a handful of mothers, it has quickly become one of the organizations on the forefront of gun violence prevention.

DONATE

Donating to the victims is now more accessible than ever with companies like GoFundMe and groups like the Broward Education Foundation who have created an account designated to helping out the victims and their families
