From Laurie Caplan:

We have a design for a CREATE logo from Susan Swanby, who designed the last version of our red NO LNG t-shirts.  Do you know another artist who might help us come up with another 1 or 2 designs,  preferably w/ a computer?  Please let me know of anyone you know who might want to donate a few hours to this project.

Another agenda item is the Women’s March, in Astoria on January 21, in conjunction w/ similar marches in DC and other cities the day after the inauguration.  We’ll have a broader statement to share with CREATE.
