Ring in the New Year with members of WHAT’S UP?!

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 – atonsor@gmail.com

We need 16 people to hold our light up sign that says #ENDWHITESILENCE

Please let Amalia know what parts of the evening you want to participate in: when can you get there? How long will you stay?image
