SOMA Against Hate Collective

On December 16, 2019, residents of South Orange and Maplewood woke up to find the town papered by hate flyers created by a Neo-Nazi group. In response, several activists, religious leaders, and others formed the SOMA Against Hate Collective. This group contacted me and I designed a set of yard signs within a few days. We printed 1,000 right off the bat and distributed them through several sites all over the area.

I see these signs every day as I move around my adopted hometown. I am still so proud to have been a part of a decisive signal to hate mongers. Some may say a yard sign isn’t much–but the organization, the communication, and the camaraderie formed around the development of them is tremendous.
