This election year has been a challenging time for those of us working to dismantle the systems that create and maintain inequity in our society. As a resource ally, CUP will continue to support the advocates on the frontlines of the social justice movement with the tools they need. It’s your work that makes cities safer for our most vulnerable communities—and we’d like to commit even more of our organizational resources to supporting these efforts.
CUP is dedicating the next round of Public Access Design to issues affecting those communities most threatened by the new administration – including work on immigrants’ rights, racial justice, and gender justice.
All Public Access Design projects are collaborations in which CUP, a designer, and a grassroots community organization or advocacy group work together to create an accessible visual explanation of a pressing social justice issue. The goal is to help people understand how that system or policy works, so that more people can engage in the decision-making around it.
