Last week there was some Nazi and racist graffiti put up around in various locations in my county in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. One example had a big swastika and the words “I kill n---ers.” Another said “N---er Get Out!”

I’m working on a big anti-racist yarn bombing project for my county. I went around my town and hung up anti-racist posters on all of the public bulletin boards. I also ordered sidewalk chalk and I am going to do some of my own (non-permanent) anti-racist graffiti. But my big project is this yarn banner. I have found several local knitters to help out with it, but I can use more help!

This yarn bombing banner will be made out of light-green squares to represent the green mountains of Vermont. I will make the letters and hands that represent the people of Vermont and appliqué them onto the background after I assemble it. You just need to make one or more squares and send them to me! If I have too many, I’ll make more than one banner.
