SURJ invites you to join us at the Rockridge BART station in Oakland, rain or shine, to call attention to racial injustice and demonstrate solidarity.
Throughout the East Bay and nationally, folks have been gathering on prominent street corners and freeway overpasses, holding signs and making visible our support for the Movement for Black Lives and communities targeted by Trump. These gatherings - or "human billboards" - have been a simple yet effective way of channeling anger and sadness over injustice into collective action and solidarity.
For those of us who are white, it's a way to express a unified voice in opposition to Trump and the white nationalist politics he represents, and to commit to ending white silence and visibly supporting racial justice.
For all of us, it's a concrete way to put our heart and soul into action. It's being in community with each other, to share with like-minded people a belief that a loving, humane, compassionate world is possible, and to take a small step towards making that happen.
Bring a sign with the following messaging!:
Will you show up for racial justice?
No Deportations! No Border Walls!
End Displacement of Black and Brown communities!
Solidarity with Undocumented Migrants!
Solidarity with Queer and Trans People of Color!
We Support Our Muslim Neighbors!
