“Black victims of police violence are not new, and George Floyd’s death has been followed by too many others. But his brutal murder opened a floodgate of outrage, demonstrations, deep reflection, and new awareness worldwide. We will not forget!”
On Wednesday, May 25th, 2022, residents of Franklin County will have the opportunity to speak out as we stand out,” to honor victims and oppose racial violence with roadside vigils on the two main east/west area thoroughfares in our county.
From 4:30 to 5:30 pm, people are invited to gather anywhere along Routes 2 and 116 in Franklin County or along the Sunderland Bridge in a larger group.
All interested can come alone or grouped by town or organization, holding signs remembering victims of police violence, or related to racial justice.
For maximum impact and outreach along the two routes, those planning to participate are asked to contact firstname.lastname@example.org with their contact information and desired location for the Standout.
