BLM Vigil to Commemorate Two Years Since the Murder of George Floyd
Wednesday, May 25, 7 p.m. on the Lower Plaza at UUC
George Floyd was murdered by a white police officer on May 25, 2020, in Minneapolis. Please join us on Wednesday, May 25, 2022 for a Black Lives Matter Vigil at 7 p.m. to mark two years since his murder and honor his memory. We will say his name, the names of other Black people killed by the police and those killed in the racially motivated hate crime in Buffalo, New York, on May 14, 2022.
We will start the vigil on the UUC Lower Plaza (parking lot level) at 7 p.m. and then move up to the street with our signs. It is important for our faith community to bear witness and re-commit to collective action for racial justice.
Please bring a mask and bring your Black Lives Matter signs if you have them. (We will also have some signs available). All ages are invited.
If you have questions, please contact Jewels Mellen.
“Today, and always, we must Never Forget the lives lost to the terror of racism, excessive force, and countless other injustices. To move forward, we must Never Forget the Black lives taken unjustly. We must demand policy changes, equality, and justice for all. In order to bring about lasting change, we must speak up, vote, and fight the cancer of inequality, racism, and white supremacy.“ #Say Their Names
