WEEKLY VIGIL

Every Saturday from 10-11 a.m. on the Greenfield Common

According to a member of RJR’s coordinating committee, “Back in the last week of May 2020 when George Floyd was killed, Racial Justice Rising vigiled 5 times.  It was clear that this was not going to be pushed under the rug and that the movement we’ve all been longing for was finally happening. RJR sent out the message that we were going to be out there every Saturday from 10am to 11am on the Greenfield Common to keep the presence alive.”
