Are you outraged by recent attacks by police upon unarmed Black men and women in Baltimore, Tulsa, Minneapolis, Baton Rouge, and Charlotte, NC? Are you angry that as brutal as the attacks have been, almost no officers have been charged or held accountable for their actions? Are you looking for ways to show your solidarity with Black people as we all clamor for justice in these cases?
As non-Black allies, we witness these injustices and know that it is critical to make our empathy and support for Black people visible and public now more than ever! Throughout the East Bay and nationally, folks have been holding weekly gatherings on prominent street corners and freeway overpasses, holding signs and making visible our support for Black communities in these critical times. These gatherings, or "human billboards," have been a simple yet effective way of calling attention to injustice and demonstrating solidarity. Come to a meeting to discuss bringing our support for the Movement 4 Black Lives to neighborhoods across the East Bay.
