(Jackson, Wyo.) - Tonight, starting at 7 p.m. on Town Square, there will be a rally for Action to #EndWhiteSilence. According to the Facebook event page
, "Showing Up for Racial
Justice (SURJ) affiliates across the country are planning actions to make
visibile white support of Black Lives Matter. Though Jackson does not have
a SURJ chapter, it is critical to demonstrate with our bodies and time that
we oppose police brutality and racism in all forms. This event will be one
of 500+ across the nation."
The organizations says that signs will be provided and people are invited
to arrive at around 6 p.m. if you'd like to help make signs.
"This is a time for us to gather to honor the lives lost in recent weeks
and their grieving communities, to take time to acknowledge and resist the
systems of oppression that create the conditions for racism and violence,"
stated the organization.
More information on tonight's event is available here.
