Event Details

Please join me in a peaceful, non-violent march of White people in support of Black lives. It is time for us White people, who hold privilege and power, to take sustained collective action against racism, which is shamefully still overwhelmingly present in all areas of our lives, and hurting millions of our brothers and sisters. It hurts all Americans. Our silence and lack of action make us complicit with this evil and horrible aspect of our society and history. It keeps us divided. It weakens all of us. It morally and spiritually empoverishes us. It corrupts the legacy we leave our children. A year ago you witnessed what happens when too many of us remain silent and fail to take action. You are only as powerless as your inaction and silence; history has shown time and again that once a determined group of individuals believe they can effect change, speak out, and take action, they can accomplish tremendous change. On the one year anniversary of the election of a racist president who is dividing and destroying our country, take action and make a stand against racism and tyranny. Don't wait any longer. Seize this day; make a stand; end your silence; and fight to end racism. All are welcome to this march, however people who identify as White are those who are being called to put an end to their silence and participate in the strongest and loudest possible way.

Part 1:

I regret to inform you that the march has been postponed, but is not cancelled. The timing of the event is less important than making sure it is well organized and achieves what it’s intended for:

1. Creating a mass mobilization of people who are willing to commit to ending their White silence, and thus creating a ground swell of sustained racial justice activism at both the local and national level.
2. Raising awareness about rampant systemic racism and racial injustice.
3. Challenging and unsettling the belief and myth that we are powerlessness and that nothing can be done to change racism and racial injustice in the United States.
4. Challenging those who are still sitting on the sidelines, and who are still remaining silent, to follow the example of their mobilized fellow citizens, and use this e
