“Backbone provides creative strategies, artful action support, and convenes training opportunities for change agents across the United States.”

On their website, it is stated that the campaign has several “action brigades” that work to install guerrilla light projections, overpass lights, LED panels, giant overpass banners, giant 2D and 3D imagery, papier-mâché puppets, hacktivism, and helium-assisted banner lifts.

Today’s action brigade also set up a banner over the I-5 this morning reading “Remove Trump, invoke the 25th amd.”

The campaign has hinted on social media for Seattleites to keep an eye out for other activism pieces in the coming days.
