Today Wednesday 22nd October in commemoration of the National Day to Stop Police Brutality, Repression, and the Criminalization of a Generation, a silent march will be held on campus for the purpose of both bringing awareness, and standing in solidarity with those directly and indirectly afflicted by the consequences of police brutality.
The march will begin at 5.30 pm outside Ross dining hall and will follow down College Street, crossing over to Warner, passing through Davis Family library and up to Mead Chapel, with occasional stops where organizers will read biographies or pieces about subjects of police brutraity. The march is scheduled to end in front of Mead Chapel at around 6.30 pm. Marchers will be wearing all black (extra black shirts will be provided for those who don’t possess one).
If you would like to make your own posters/signs, the Crest Room at McCullough will be open from 2-5 PM and there will supplies provided (markers, pencils, paper, etc.). You are welcome to show up anytime. A group of students will convene at Crest Room at 4:30 PM to discuss logistics for the day and make posters. Led candles will also be available.
Please join in and support a cause that has become very prominent these past few years with police shootings and the increasing militarization putting into question the role and context of our policing forces. for more information click here
