Stephanie McMillan has been awarded the prestigious RFK Journalism Award
for editorial cartooning, which is given for work focusing on "human rights, social justice, and the power of individual action." McMillan is a regular contributor to Cartoon Movement and her RFK entry included both her Code Green
editorial cartoons and "The Beginning of the American Fall
" piece she did for us in November.
"I'm gratified to have my work recognized specifically as a contribution to social justice," McMillan tells us. "The reasons I draw cartoons are to expose the fundamentally unjust nature of the global capitalist/imperialist system, and to encourage resistance to it. I consider my cartoon work to be complementary to building actual organized resistance. Artists who care about social justice should be involved in the struggle for it, and dedicate their work in its service."
