This Sunday in Davis, we are joining a coalition of local groups for the March for Justice in Support of Black Lives organized by Dillan Horton.
Who: You, all of your friends & neighbors
What: A march to demand justice #March4JusticeDavis
When: Sunday, June 14th, 1pm
Where: Central Park, Davis
Why: If we don’t demand it, we won’t get it
Spread the word, bring a friend, and march with us.
Dillan writes, “I hope you’ll join me this Sunday for a march to show our community’s support for systemic change to our inefficient and overmilitarized system of policing.
We’ll be rallying together at the Solidarity Space in the middle of Central Park. You’ll hear from people in our community who have experienced anti-blackness and police brutality firsthand. A chant leader will get us together and coordinated. Then we’ll march into downtown and take this movement for justice to the streets.
We will be taking this movement to the streets to show everyone, particularly the powers that be, how large and diverse this movement is. We’re going to march to declare that Black students in a backward education system, their lives matter. We’re going to march to declare that Black trans people who’s persecution is often ignored, their lives matter. We’re going to march to declare that Black women who endure the dual injustices of anti-blackness & patriarchy, their lives matter. We’re going to march to make it clear that Black Lives Matter, everyday in every way.
You will also hear from activists and advocates working to redirect tax dollars from inefficient & overmilitarized policing to reinvest in community programs & services. Take this opportunity to demonstrate Davis’ commitment to creating a new model for public safety in our town, take this opportunity to rally behind proposals for systematic change in our community.
Bring a sign, bring a mask, and bring your conviction to dismantle all systems of oppression.”
