Humanize My Hoodie

  • Old Brick 26 East Market Street Iowa City, IA, 52245 United States (map)

Co-Sponsored by Beloved Community Initiative and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America

The Humanize My Hoodie Project is designed to foster critical conversations about threat perception. With the senseless killing of Trayvon Martin, many conversations spurred about people of color, Black people in particular, and their use of hoodies. This workshop will help develop allies and further the discussion on dismantling the stigma associated with clothing items.

Designed in the spirit of community, this is a training for allies who want to be a part of the movement but who might not know how. Be prepared to leave wanting to put on your hoodie and walk your streets in love and respect, ready to answer questions and promote awareness.
