Call of Action by Conflicted Holiday
Conflicted holiday is a project started as a response to the growing need to make a statement about ongoing injustices in the United States. As a people we are tired of systematic oppression that affects us all. We protest, we march, we hold conversation in public and private spaces.
The goal of Conflicted Holiday is to add another angle to the growing need to raise our voice and take a stand on recent trends in police brutality, and systematic injustice. We are in solidarity with marchers and protesters. This project does not replace the need to get out in the street and march. It offers a way to make a statement online as well as in the street.
Conflicted Holiday aims to be a creative conversation starter in homes, theaters, bars, restaurants, and anywhere else people assemble. for more info visit ConflictedHoliday.com
