A paragraph of small text is printed at bottom left that begins, "This poster is a project of Movement Rising, a national network of young people's organizations working for justice in their communities." Text at bottom right reads, "For more information about the War on Terrorism and its impacts on communities around the world, see www.politicaleducation.org and www.war-times.org / design by i arte media: www.iarte.com - illustration by ten12.com - printed at Inkworks Press." A recycling symbol and a union label for Allied Printing #147 are printed at bottom right.

Poster printed with red, orange, and blue ink on white paper. The page has an overall red background with stylized blue missiles and rifles. Some of the weapons have small white text on the subject of racial profiling and Afghani civilian casualties of the War on Terror. In the center of the poster are four stylized figures in blue, orange, and white (from left to right): a woman with a white head scarf and an apron who is looking to the left, a young woman facing the viewer who is carrying an infant, and a young man wearing a polo shirt in three quarter profile. "War Targets Poor People of Color" is printed below the figures. Smaller text just below reads, "WE SAY -- NO MORE LOST LIVES! Peace will only come when all people are treated with respect and dignity. The tragic events of September 11, 2001 have taught us that for peace and security at home, we must support peace and justice abroad. The War on Terrorism is not the answer."
