A peaceful showing to break white silence and support the Black Lives Matter attendees and organizers and the #AmInext attendees and organizers at the rally.
We will meet in front of Panera Bread at 99 Monroe Ave NW, Grand Rapids, Mi 49503 and will start migrating to Rosa Parks Circle at 12:15 pm.
Please bring signs in support of Showing up for Racial Justice (SURJ), in support of Black Lives Matter (please exclude the "All Lives Matter" phrase), in support of #AmINext, and in favor of breaking white silence. Wear comfortable shoes, bring water for yourself.
More than 3500 people have RSVP'd for the #AmINext rally in Grand Rapids. https://www.facebook.com/events/1116446815061265/
Note: Our presence is not against the police but against racial discrimination and racist violence. We are breaking white silence in this matter, it affects all of us. The event will be lawful and we'll be supporting all black attendees.
