The Week That Was

1 min read

Every Saturday we feature the powerful images created by one member of our DemCast USA graphics team. There was a lot of news over the past week, a new vaccine, some states recklessly reopening early, the For The People Act and the George Floyd Act both were passed by the House. There was also some news about Dr. Seuss.The Senate is debating the Covid Relief Bill, but giving people a living wage seems wasteful to some Republicans. And, of course, it’s Women’s History Month. This Saturday Joanne Streeck tells us the story of this week with her wonderful images.

Joanne tells us this about herself: “Like so many others, I was shocked and disgusted when Donald Trump won the election in 2016. I turned my outrage into social media activism by reactivating my dormant twitter account. As a result of meeting other like-minded people working for change, I started creating graphics to support Democrats running for office in the midterm election. Now retired, my background as an occupational therapist specializing in assistive technology services for students with disabilities, gave me some of the skills I use to create graphics that quickly convey a message. It’s been a privilege to be part of the talented and hardworking DemCast organization, especially the graphics team, who’s work inspires me daily.”
