We're a Culture, Not a Costume Campaign
The University of Denver's Housing and Residential Education department has launched a photo campaign to help end culturally appropriative (Halloween) costumes. The, "We're a Culture, Not a Costume" addresses the problematic practice of cultural appropriation surrounding Halloween costumes, practices, and celebrations. The goal of the campaign is to raise awareness and to create a better sense of belonging and how to have a respectful and inclusive community for all students at DU.
This campaign has been adapted from Ohio University's Students Teaching About Racism in Society (STARS).
