Date(s) - Wednesday, Aug 19
4:30 pm - 5:00 pm
pin SW Multnomah Blvd
Every Wednesday from 4:30-5:30 pm.
We will stand on Multnomah Boulevard in Multnomah Village, between SW 34th Ave and the Capitol Hwy bridge. Please wear a mask and maintain physical distancing – if needed we will spread out East from 34th as well. This event will be peaceful and family-friendly. If there are any negative responses to our protest, we ask that you not engage. Feel free to seek help from an event organizer (in blue Resist T-shirts).
Bring a sign as well as some to share if you have extras. Here are some sign message ideas:
BLACK LIVES MATTER
WHITE SILENCE = VIOLENCE
JUSTICE FOR GEORGE FLOYD
SAY THEIR NAMES
Organized by SW Action Group (SWAG) for Social Justice, Stand on Every Corner PDX, and 350 PDX SW team.
* Gathering in solidarity is important and we hope to see you there! We must also write letters, make donations to Black-led organizations, volunteer our time and demand that Black Lives Matter, in policy and in practice.
** We encourage you to also attend black-led events!
