You’re here because November 8th, 2016 brought some bad news, AND the whole of 2017 was pretty rough.
A New Year’s Revolution started on November 9, 2016 when a small group of progressively-minded friends in Brooklyn and D.C. found themselves faced with arguably one of the most dangerous Presidents elect that this country has ever seen. On New Year’s Eve, they made a resolution to encourage collective, daily resistance to the incoming administration and its policies, and to fight for progressive change on a larger scale.
Every single day of 2017, our group of volunteers distilled the chaos of the news cycle into easy, tangible actions (the #DailyRevolution) on our website, e-newsletter, and social media platforms. Actions have included calls to our members of Congress on our shortcut number (202-858-ANYR), protests, and ways to care for ourselves, each other, and the environment to counter the hate and violence that seem to come with every phone vibration.
By encouraging civic engagement as a regular habit(a bit more fun than flossing, we’d like to think), ANYR hopes to cultivate a culture of social awareness and accountability that will sustain the resistance movement for years to come. We want the conversation and action to continue beyond our online platform into people’s daily lives, which is why we’re thrilled to have had the opportunity to create this 2018 calendar in collaboration with twelve likeminded artists. Supplemented by our online toolkits and monthly newsletter, the calendar offers resources to support your personal revolution, and to help us come together as a community. After all, we’re stronger together.
We are here with you at every step, providing some direction to help with those overwhelming, apocalyptic feels.
