MARCH FOR RACIAL JUSTICE AND TO END POLICE VIOLENCE
Please join us in Washington, D.C. or at one of the marches around the country this Saturday, December 13, as we stand in solidarity with thousands of community members, activists, and organizations to march against police violence and demand racial justice.
In Washington, D.C., the National Action Network has organized the National March Against Police Violence, which begins in Freedom Plaza at noon. Faith leaders, community members, regional activists, and national organizations will all begin meeting at 10:30am to prepare to march alongside the families of Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, and Akai Gurley.
The National Black Justice Coalition and the National LGBTQ Task Force are organizing an LGBTQ contingent of the march to show that we stand proud and strong in favor of equality and justice for all. The LGBTQ contingent will be meeting at 9 am in front of the Starbucks in Freedom Plaza (the corner of 13th Street NW and Pennsylvania Ave NW). We will have materials to make posters and signs, and will be marching with a banner. Feel free to bring your own signs too!
If you are interested in attending the march in D.C. but don’t live locally, the National Action Network is organizing buses to D.C. from 25 different cities throughout the country that will arrive in time for the march on Saturday. Also, if you are an organizer who plans to bus in attendees register your bus with NAN.
If you can’t make it to D.C., consider attending a march near you. There are many more marches around the country, including:
In Boston, many organizations are planning to march on the Massachusetts State House at noon.
In San Francisco, Millions March San Francisco is organizing to march at the San Francisco Ferry Building at 2:00pm.
Join us as we march for equality, march for racial justice, and march for an end to the violence. And if you cannot attend, please spread the word. Stand with us as we stand for freedom for all.
We look forward to seeing you Saturday,
National Black Justice Coalition & National LGBTQ Task Force
