Sarah Vogwill (Art MFA 90)

Sarah Vogwill (Art MFA 90) says, “I’ve set aside my art practice to become actively engaged with the international environmental activist movement, Extinction Rebellion. After hosting Hudson Valley Intentional Community meetups for two years, I’ve shifted to facing the crisis head-on with direct action organizing. An early joiner, I’m now coordinator of the XR graphics and visual design working group as well as co-lead of my neighborhood group, North Brooklyn Extinction Rebellion (NBXR). In addition to a campaign aimed at pressuring the dominant media to tell the truth about the climate emergency, XR was also instrumental in getting New York City to declare a climate emergency.
