Andre’ Wright and Jason Sole present Humanize my Hoodie.

Andre’ Wright, CEO of Born Leaders United and Jason Sole a criminal justice educator have teamed up to form Humanize my Hoodie; an organization that seeks to destigmatize clothing trends associated with people of color and indigenous people.

Join us for a powerful presentation by Andre’ Wright and Jason Sole and afterward make your own shirt. Learn about their mission and how you can be a powerful ally and accomplice in equity.

“We need your help in de-stigmatizing clothing trends associated with Black and Indigenous People of Color. The senseless killings of Black people at the hands of police officers have spurred conversations about society’s perception of the hoodie. Simply put: If you are Black and sporting a hoodie, YOU ARE CONSIDERED A THREAT. We seek to create a world in which our fashion isn’t probable cause for us to be slain in the streets!”- Humanize my Hoodie
