In the U.S., Halloween has become the national holiday for cultural appropriation. In 2011, Ohio University started a poster campaign to urge students and others to avoid racist, stereotyping, and culturally appropriated Halloween costumes.

This has been one of the most effective campaigns we have seen addressing the issue of cultural appropriation.
