For years I have used The Noun Project to find icons for use on the web, including icons you see on this site. Now, “Icons for Change” has just launched a site that provides free signs to use for protests, community gatherings, even personal reminders. The themes of the posters are focused on the ideals and principles that make America truly great, instead of the Us vs. Them rhetoric that has become all too prevalent.
