This past Sunday, Jacob Blake, a 29 year old Black man was shot multiple times in the back by a Kenosha police officer. Jacobs’ three children — 3,5,and 8 were all in the car when it happened.
In this moment of civil unrest, racial injustice, and trauma stemmed from a lack of humanity and insensitivity, we NEED to surround our fight around art that heals and action that leads to accountability. It’s going to take radical strategizing, legislation, community organizing and healing spaces.
Join a group of college students and driven artists as we meet and rally for Black lives and voices. Let’s reassemble, re-energize, and reform the systems of our city, our state, and our nation. We will demand legislation to be passed that protects BLACK LIVES and BLACK VOICES. We demand the defunding of police and rebudgetting and reallocating of resources, funding, and attention to BLACK COMMUNITIES!!
We will rally, sing, paint, and speak out against racial injustice. Join us on September 5th 2020 at 5PM at Copley Square right in front of Trinity Street Church (206 Clarendon St, Boston, MA 02116).
