Wednesday December 31st
Ring in the New Year with members of WHAT’S UP?! and demand racial justice in 2015!
We have been scheming creative ways to engage white people who are downtown on New Year’s Eve and need your help.
Expect to talk to people about racism, be seen with bright and bold signs, encourage people to commit to racial justice in 2015, walk in a parade, work in teams, tweet for justice
Dress warm! Lights in your outfit a bonus! We will have patches to pin on your jackets that say #blacklivesmatter
PLEASE RSVP to Amalia – firstname.lastname@example.org
We need 16 people to hold our light up sign that says #ENDWHITESILENCE
