20 MINUTE SILENT VIGIL, SOLIDARITY PROTEST AND NEXT ACTIONS WE CAN TAKE.

The past few months have been so incredibly difficult as we navigate this pandemic and all the injustice and inequity we see, in our community and all over America. This pain and fear has been exacerbated in witnessing the death of George Floyd by the unlawful violence of Minneapolis police officers. It is important for us to feel all that we feel, be there for each other and encourage action for change. We hope to provide a healing and reflective space to stand together in silence and reflect on the lives lost to racism, injustice and inequity, in this country. George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Sandra Bland, Tamir Rice, Freddie Gray, Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Walter Scott, Trayvon Martin and more lives taken.Everyone is welcome to be in community together (6 feet apart and with mandatory masks) on the sidewalk on RT16 along side Reidy Field and the new Softball Field. Please park in the tennis courts or on the street, past the fields (we don’t want to block where we will be standing). Please bring your sign to show support, love, respect and peace.We will honor the lives of the too many Black men, women and children who have been killed by police violence in America and we will stand together and demand justice and to ending police violence and murder. We will share actions we can take as a community to end racism in our community and in America.

LET’S END WHITE SILENCE
