"Well behaved women seldom make history."
To empower people to get involved and make a difference in their communities.
WHAT WE DO
We use art to move people to get involved in their communities and realize that their opinion matters.
We are a community of artists, lawyers, mothers, and anyone that wants to make a difference.
Art for Reform was created by two mothers – an artist and a lawyer – in a living room in Spokane, Washington. Carolina Johnson, the artist, is an interior designer and the mother of twins. She wanted to create art that moved people to make a difference, but she found politics and the law inaccessible. Janelle Carney, the lawyer, is a litigation attorney and the mother of a son. She was moved to take action by the shootings in Freeman and Parkland, but she had not yet found the right way to get involved. As a team, they are seeking to harness the power of art and politics to make a meaningful difference in a culture in which the horror of school shootings has become terrifyingly routine.
By creating art and examining politics, Art 4 Reform seeks to inspire people to become involved in their communities, to understand that their votes matter, and to understand that they too can make a difference in this world.
