The Humanize My Hoodie Movement originated from a demand to end the killing of Black and Indigenous People across the world. As descendants of slaves, we recognize how hoodies have been used to amplify the myth of Black criminality. Our mission is to debunk that stereotype by designing revolutionary social justice campaigns for Black and Indigenous People of Color to be HUMANIZED, not criminalized.
Many of these scheduled activities may include talking points, media/video, and discussion around topics such as racism and racial slurs, sexism, misogyny, classism, physical violence, and identity-based discrimination and harassment. The Office of Equity & Inclusion acknowledges that this content may be difficult. We also encourage you to care for your safety and well-being.
