Happening Now

We're a Culture, Not a Costume
We're a Culture, Not a Costume

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)
