Racial Justice Poster Project

2018 marks our Racial Justice Poster Project’s 10th anniversary. We want to use this milestone to lift up the artistic legacy of racial justice movement building, paying tribute to the courage of artistic and cultural ambassadors engaged in the ongoing struggle for racial justice locally and nationally.

In honor of the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination we are thrilled to unveil this year’s racial justice poster, ‘Transmission: Received’ by Joshua Mays.
