Troops Stand Down For Black Lives


I have been honored to make a series of graphics for About Face: Veterans Against the War. Over the course of the current uprising for racial justice About Face has been reaching out and supporting service members refusing to deploy against demonstrations for Black lives.

Service members need to know that if they have concerns about mobilizing, they are not alone. They have options and rights. Contact veterans who can help: or the GI Rights Hotline for confidential advice: 877-447-4487

An army woman kneels down with one fist raised in the air. Text states: “TROOPS STAND DOWN FOR BLACK LIVES.” “If you have concerns about mobilizing, you’re not alone. You have options. You have rights.”
