95 signs to carry when praying with your legs
My community at Temple Israel of Hollywood had a poster writing party before Shabbat for the March in LA. Thanks to Jennifer Levin and dozens of others, young and old, who are “praying with their feet” this Shabbat ( per Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel who explained what he did in the march from Selma to Montgomery with Dr. Martin Luther King in 1965)
Blacks, whites, immigrants, Jews, Muslims, Christians,
LGBTQs, women, men, children
are what make America great!
There is no planet B
Love, not hate, makes America great
Left or Right — we can all see Wrong
Kind is the new cool
Love has no border control
Be Brave – Choose Love
Fight like a girl
Fake your tans not your news
Make America Kind again
Hear me roar!
One race: human
Let’s teach our kids NOT to have a favorite color
Hey grownups: your silence is your consent
Okay Ladies, let’s get in formation –
My voice counts!
My body My choice
Yes, we can.
Si, Se Puede!
Dumbledore wouldn’t let this happen
I am so angry I made a sign
I know signs.
I make the best signs.
So you prefer Unplanned Parenthood?
Immigrants welcome! Racists go home!
We’ll paint a rainbow over whitewashed America
Save the mermaids, please keep our oceans clean
This is what a feminist looks like
Build kindness not walls
I am not powerless
Did I object to your marriage?
The planet does not get a recount
“I know up on top you are seeing great sights,
but down here at the bottom,
we too should have rights!” Dr. Seuss
Stay off of my Mom’s vagina!
No-one is free when some are oppressed
Kids against bulls**t
A woman’s place is in the revolution
Make America think again
Uh, oh – Now you’ve pissed off Grandma
I will not learn your hate
To all the adults out there – we are counting on you
A woman’s place is in the House, the Senate, and the Oval Office
This is the last straw
Love is gay. Love is straight. Love is lesbian. Love is bisexual. Love is transgender.
I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change.
I am changing the things I cannot accept.
If I make my uterus a corporation, will you stop regulating it?
Feminism, back by popular Demand
I didn’t come from your rib, you came from my vagina!
Things money can’t buy:
Integrity, character, common sense, manners, love, kindness, class
“Our lives begin to end, the day we become silent about things that matter!” MLK
It’s a country, not a corporation
If God hates gays, why are we so cute?!
I’m really not happy about this
When someone tells you they got rich through hard work, ask them, “Whose”?
No woman can call herself free if she does not own and control her own body
Hell hath no fury like 157 million women scorned
When all the trees are cut
When all the animals are dead
When all the waters are poisoned
When all the air is unsafe to breathe
Only then will you discover…
YOU CANNOT EAT MONEY
1968 is calling, don’t answer
Protest is patriotic
We were served a LEMON
But we’ll make LEMONADE
Nasty and Loud
Left – Right – How about forward?
Mother Earth hasn’t shown you nasty yet
Build a wall around Hate, Oppression, Violence, Inequality, Bigotry, Fear
It’s global warming, stupid!
If you don’t like gay marriage, blame straight people.
They’re the ones who keep having Gay babies!
You know things are messed up when the white guys start marching
Our Voices together cannot be Silenced
Thanks Trump –
You turned me into an activist
Speak your mind or someone will speak it for you
We will not be voted into the closet
Not a socialist, not an elite, not an anarchist, not a left-wing nut
Just a parent here for a better world for my kids!
And this is just the first day of the next four years
Power to the peaceful
To all the little girls watching right now:
Never doubt that you are valuable & powerful & deserving of every chance in the world
Your election was a hate crime!
Yes, I am a feminist. No, I don’t hate men.
This kitty grabs back
“If you really think the environment is less important than the economy,
try holding your breath while you count your money.”
If you cut off my reproductive choice… Can I cut off yours?
Does conversion therapy work for bigots?
Have your wall, but my generation will tear it down
It’s easier to buy a gun than my education
Abortion is health care
Don’t trust me with a choice, but with a child
“Thou shalt not mess with women’s reproductive rights” Fallopian 4:28
Make empathy great again
“The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil,
but by those who watch them without doing anything.” Albert Einstein
