Media and Arts
CNC's blog, Imagine2050, exposes organized racism in the United States and ignites candid conversations about race, immigration, national identity, and belonging through the lens of politics and culture. Contributors have included activists, artists, and students who are invested in a future nation that embraces a multiracial democracy.
The commentary and analysis of CNC board members and staff has been published in and cited by a range of publications including The New York Times, The Chicago Tribune, The Nation, Washington Post, Mother Jones, Huffington Post and The Hill, among others.
CNC works with artist communities and unconventional allies in addressing racist movements and promotes creative resistance. CNC collaborates with artists to promote cultural resistance through showcases, events, digital productions, and more.
