CMU Muslim Ban Protest banner

I'm still documenting the Muslim Ban Protest we had on campus Jan. 31, 2017. The president of the Muslim Student Association brought us the huge banner the MSA carried in the protest march. It is made of plastic and the words were written on in marker pen. While this was affordable and a good option for bad weather, the letters are not holding up very well long-term.  You can see that some of the letters are flaking apart, making the letters harder to read and getting color all over the white section. We folded it and will have to find a good storage option. We do have photos of it in action and now for the historical record. Besides the banner I also have photographs, small signs, news coverage. and speeches.

Then, at the CMU campus protest march, Jan. 31, 2017

Now, retired to the archives
