We’re very proud that one of our artists– and a dear friend– Nancy Ohanian, was just honored by the National Press Foundation with their 2019 Berryman Award for Editorial Cartoons.
The same day, Ted Lieu also presented her with a Congressional Certificate of Recognition. There is a video of Nancy accepting her award here.
Today we want to give away 4 prints– each autographed by the artist– from her heroes of the revolution series:
- Ted Lieu (California) +.04
- Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (New York) +.03
- Rashida Tlaib .02 (Michigan) +.02
- Randy Bryce .01 (Wisconsin) +.01
We’ll randomly select 4 donors and give each donor one print– the one you want.
How will we know which drawing you want? Well, imagine you decide to donate $20. Add one cent for Randy Bryce, two cents for Rashida Tlaib, three cents for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez or four cents for Ted Lieu. So if you want the Randy Bryce image, you’d give $20.01. Or say you want to contribute $5 and have a chance to win the Rashida print, You contribute $5.02. Easy enough, right?
And the money you give goes where? Our independent expenditure committee spends money supporting the progressive congressional candidates we endorse.
You can see the list, here: our 2020 House candidates so far.
(If you don’t want a print but still feel like giving, donate to one of the candidates– or all of them– at the link right above.)
Or you can just tap on the ActBlue contest thermometer, below right:
AND… I just thought of this… if you’re feeling’ flush… we’re going to send one person a package of 10 of Nancy’s prints. Which person? The one who contributes the most in this little contest– which ends next Saturday night at 9pm (PDT).
This is what Congressman Ted Lieu said about her:
“Nancy Ohanian is a national treasure. Her art is powerful, moving and informative. Satire and humor can reveal truth in a way that other forms of communication cannot. And Nancy is one of the masters at it.”
This is a chance to win a signed print by this powerful, award-winning artist of some of the best progressive champions in the country. Hey, start a collection. She hasn’t even done one of Ilhan Omar yet… but I’m sure that’s coming soon. Just go here and contribute what you can— there’s no minimum of course– and you well may find one of these beautiful, collectible prints at your front door.
Thanks for always doing what you can to make a better world.
Howie, for the entire Blue America team
