img shows quote by Ibram X Kendi While not knitting related, there are many creatives in other disciplines who read this space: Antiracism Symbol Design Challenge

Protest art always has been instrumental to the struggle for a more socially just future. From the clenched Black Power fist, to the rainbow flag for LGBTQ rights, to the campaign for nuclear disarmament peace sign, iconic global symbols representing social justice, resistance, and solidarity have breathed life into movements and challenged generations to build a better world. ~Ibram X Kendi

Submissions due by Monday July 29th at 5pm ET. Learn more at the contest website.
