Halloween

CHECKLIST
IS YOUR COSTUME OFFENSIVE?
Check yourself and your friends.

Ask: Does this costume...


mock cultural or
religious symbols
such as dreadlocks,
headdresses, afros,
bindis, etc.?

attempt to
represent an entire
culture or
ethnicity?

trivialize human suffering,


oppression, and marginalization
such as portraying a person who
is homeless, imprisoned, a
person with disabilities, or a
person with mental illness?

UNSURE IF YOUR COSTUME MIGHT BE OFFENSIVE?

Dont be scared to ask questions.
