This is TOMORROW. We will be marching from the park across the mall to the police department on Washington (the “public safety” complex that happens to be shaped like a handgun from aerial view). Be there. If you need more info find the event on Facebook or hit me up. Again, as many of y’all should be there as possible. It’s not only an act of solidarity with Ferguson, but an act of resistance against the (in)Justice System and the police violence that we experience *right here in Providence*. This isn’t a faraway problem. It’s structural and it plays out in the lived experience for many of us right here. So…*~ be there*~ :) #Ferguson #providence #policeviolence
On August 14, 2014, citizens across America will gather in solidarity to hold vigils and observe a moment of silence to honor victims of Police Brutality
Police Brutality in the United States continues to be a pervasive problem that affects communities across the country. In recent years, we have had news of too many people losing their lives as a result of police brutality. We have also heard too many stories of people being sexually and otherwise physically assaulted by police.
We are gathering together to observe a National Moment of Silence to pay respect to the lives lost and/or forever changed by the brutality of the police state.
Too many citizens have suffered. Their families and friends need our positive energy and support in this moment of anger, frustration, fear, and helplessness.
How social media helped facilitate a national moment of silence to honor victims of police brutality, show solidarity with their families, and allow communities to come together in a moment of mourning and support.
More cities are being added, check here for updates and info on starting a vigil in your city.
