PEACEFUL PROTEST – 4PM
Due to the pandemic, unfortunately we cannot have a parade. Instead of a parade, please join us for a peaceful BLM protest on Friday August 21st, 2020. We will begin at the CT State Capital, march down Albany Avenue to acknowledge Black owned businesses, turn right onto Woodland Street, and end at Keney Park to stay within the social distancing guidelines.
This date was chosen as a local kick-off for those that may or may not travel to attend the 2020 March on Washington hosted by Al Sharpton, which takes place the following weekend.
SOCIAL DISTANCE AT KENEY PARK – 5:30PM-7:30PM
Bring your own blanket and bagged lunch. Blankets should be placed 15 feet away from each other. Have your masks with you. Networking, business cards, and cross promotion to build community conversations is encouraged.
