ANTI-RACISM CAMPAIGN LAUNCH










ANTI-RACISM CAMPAIGN LAUNCH


ACTION !!!

RACISM SUX!!!

It's plain and simple.

Racism is an evil that is degrading moral judgment in communities locally and globally. With all the information available, there are many who still choose to create marginalisation through discrimination based on the triviality of culture and skin.

ART WANTED
TO ACTIVELY PROMOTE
DIVERSITY AND ACCEPTANCE
IN ALL COMMUNITIES

Campaign initiator is Art Action Union member littleredplanet, he aproached the AAU with this idea:

Racism is the belief that a particular race is superior or inferior to another, that a person’s social and moral traits are predetermined by his or her inborn biological characteristics. Racial separatism is the belief, most of the time based on racism, that different races should remain segregated and apart from one another.

We would like to encourage the public and the Red Bubble Community to reflect on the numerous forms that racial discrimination can take in society. In addition, we invite our RedBubble Community to join forces in the fight against racism.

This event not only acknowledges the potential of peoples from around the world. It also represents a tangible effort to build a society characterized by harmony, equality and respect for diversity.


Gather your creative and social conscience powers, make a t-shirt, piece of art, write a poem or a journal and upload it. Express your story and yourself in a positive and outward way. Not only can you provide another voice to create a better force, but you might help someone else (and yourself) feel better.

My husband and I came up with a unique design that we are selling on t-shirts, clothing and gifts in response to our feelings to try to end racism. I have also written a blog with tips on how to teach racial acceptance to children. Please visit:
