We Create and We Resist: GISH and Social Activism

Photo Credit: Judit Julià For Team Illusive Yetis: Backstory for this GISH Item from Judit’s Teammate Cindy: The house is in Vancouver, Canada and functions as a boarding house for expats from around the world, and everyone in the house all saw it and were in awe and sent pictures home to their families. “Item Description: Last quarantine hunt we had people making signs to show appreciation for first responders and medical professionals. This Hunt, we would like to turn our attention to showing support to people of color whose lives are impacted or even lost because of the institutional racism in the American criminal justice system. Make a sign showing your solidarity for Black Lives Matter or in memory of George Floyd or other people of color impacted by racism and post it in your window or in your front yard.”
