Every day, people are bombarded with stereotypes. Ideas of who we are and what we should be. Limitations put on us based on our gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, or class. Labels that limit people in the world, whether they’re accurate or not.
In 2015, the Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities joins with affiliates across the country to launch a national social media campaign titled #MoreThanAStereotype. This campaign is for EVERYONE. VCIC wants this campaign to go viral, bringing in participants from across the Commonwealth and the nation who want to show that each of us is more than meets the eye.
HOW DO I GET INVOLVED?
Download the poster template (11×17 version or 8.5×11 version) or contact our office to get a poster. You can then print the template, write down a stereotype that you defy, and take a picture of yourself holding the sign.
During the week of January 5, 2015, post your picture on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter with the hashtag #MoreThanAStereotype, and tag VCIC:
- Facebook – Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities
- Instagram – inclusive_va
- Twitter – @inclusiveva
Together, let’s show the world that we are all #MoreThanAStereotype.
