Project Description

I was commissioned by Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) to create a series of graphics for social media.

In 2015, amidst white criticism of the Movement for Black Lives and rampant Islamaphobia in response to the Syrian refugee crisis, I designed a holiday “placemat,” as a resource for addressing racism with loved ones over the holidays. It was posted a few days before Thanksgiving to SURJ’s Facebook wall and received over 1,000 likes and over 2,000 shares. I created another guide around the Fourth of July for holiday discussions on Trump and racism. When five Black Lives Matter activists were wounded from a racially motivated attack in Minneapolis, I designed “Six Ways White People Can Help End The War on Black Lives.” And when Colin Kaepernick took bold action against police brutality and for racial justice, SURJ invited me to create a resource for talking Kaepernick with friends and family. The Kaepernick graphic received nearly 1,000 likes and close to 800 shares.
