Art as Activism to #StopRacism (A Call for Submissions) -

With the deaths of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Eric Garner, and so many other African American men, we have seen the results of centuries of unresolved racism in this country. How can we address the systemic racism in this country? At The Good Men Project, we have weekly calls to create and build an activist community; a Facebook group to keep a cohesive community and get content and art out to the world; classes to teach people how to build a platform, create art and viral hits, become more politically involved and create social change; and huge library of insightful and impactful content.

Now we are asking for your art.

How do you engage, explain, understand, and begin to stop racism through your poetry, stories, drawings, comics, designs, photography and other forms of art?

We want to see and share what you have created to touch, move, and inspire others to #StopRacism.


We know you care about the issues of racism. It is an issue The Good Men Project has been tackling for years. Always important, these issue of racism—in all its forms—have now reached critical importance with the changes in government happening since the recent election. We have a new sense of urgency to put this issue front and center.

When you’re ready to submit, click the red box, below.


As you can see—this is a multi-media, multi-faceted, strategically organized plan to grow the activist community of people stepping up to #StopRacism. 

Our hope is that you will share this information with anyone you know that wants to work to #StopRacism. There are numerous ways people can actively participate free of charge. For those who want to help us take our resources to the next level, please consider becoming a member of The Good Men Project here.


What’s Next? Talk with others. Take action.

Here’s the thing about The Good Men Project. We are trying to create big, sweeping, societal changes—–overturn stereotypes, eliminate racism, sexism, homophobia, be a positive force for good for things like education reform and the environment. And we’re also giving individuals the tools they need to make individual change—-with their own relationships, with the way they parent, with their ability to be more conscious, more mindful, and more insightful. For some people, that could get overwhelming. But for those of us here at The Good Men Project, it is not overwhelming. It is simply something we do—–every day. We do it with teamwork, with compassion, with an understanding of systems and how they work, and with shared insights from a diversity of viewpoints.”

-– Lisa Hickey, Publisher of The Good Men Project and CEO of Good Men Media Inc.
