This year’s election is important. But voting isn’t the only way to play an active role in building our democracy and working towards meaningful social change.

There are a million ways to take civic action every day. Which will you take?

At CUP, every one of our projects gives us a chance to think about what civic action can mean. We want to share that with you. This year, instead of holding our annual fundraising event, we want to do something that speaks to and supports the energy of this moment.  

We’re doing that with Civic Action Every Day, a series of online programs, to help folks find ways to make deeper commitments to everyday civic action. Each event is an opportunity to support CUP’s work, while learning from CUP staff and partners about ways to weave civic activism into your life. 

Use our youth education methods to manage your stress and process the news so you can stay engaged, learn about creating meaningful probono collaborations, and hear from our grassroots partners about how to engage in ways that support marginalized communities and their visions for change.

Get engaged and support CUP by joining us for our upcoming programs! The suggested donation for entry is $75, but all donations amounts are welcome. All the funds we raise support CUP’s work collaborating with marginalized communities to build their civic power.

Investigating Current Events Through Art!

Thursday, November 12th, 6:30pm via Zoom

Have you ever wanted to know what it would be like to be a student in CUP’s youth education programs? Are you trying to process your thoughts and feelings about the latest news cycle? This is the program for you! Join CUP’s Youth Education Program Manager Fielding Hong for a peek inside our programs and explore current events through art, just like our students do! In this hands-on, interactive workshop, Fielding will lead participants through one of the activities we use in our award-winning project-based learning programs. Participants will process a current news story, through art-making, and learn about how CUP students have used this activity in the past to process what they’ve learned around issues impacting their communities, including displacement, police accountability, and community surveillance. This program is a great way to get a rare inside look into the way CUP works!

How to do Pro Bono Work to Support Communities

Tuesday, November 17th, 3pm via Zoom

Right now, many creative professionals like graphic designers, artists, architects, and others are looking for ways to support communities with their expertise. Pro bono work can provide meaningful work to organizations with limited resources. But the history and practice of pro bono work also includes unfulfilled promises, incomplete work, and damaged relationships. While CUP doesn’t engage in pro-bono work, we recognize the value it can hold for all parties involved. This workshop is focused on addressing the common challenges of pro-bono design collaborations, with a focus on helping designers show up in a way that centers community needs, and getting to an outcome that leads to real impact.

Civic Engagement Beyond Voting: How You Can Get Involved

Wednesday, December 9th, 3pm via Zoom

In a frank conversation, CUP’s Executive Director Christine Gaspar and leaders from some of our community partner organizations will discuss how individuals can connect, with a focus on taking the lead from marginalized communities and showing up in respectful ways.

What does a more robust daily practice of civic engagement look? The group will explore a range of activities, including community organizing, volunteering, and donating to causes.
