full description & details:

March from Garfield High School and Rally at Martin Luther King Jr Memorial Park and join in Solidarity with the Black Community to end police brutality, to demand Justice, Economic Development of the Black Community, Education that ends the School to Prison Pipeline.

We, the youth, the next generation of this country join with our Elders, unifying old and young to stop history from repeating itself. We are the future. If we want to live in a world where people are not afraid of the police we have to fight for change, for accountability, for an equal say in our destiny. People are angry now. We have to use our anger to fuel this movement, to affect change, to DEMAND JUSTICE. We can not stop until we see the change that we want.

As a people, we need to stand up and voice our opinions peacefully. Please come and show your support. Create signs and invite everyone you know. We cannot stay silent. We need to get loud and be heard. Voice your opinions and don't stop until a proper change comes. Old and young, Black and white, red, yellow and brown-an injustice to one is an injustice to all. Black Lives Matter!!

The march will start at Garfield High School and proceed to Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park. There, we will rally, we will organize, this is just the beginning. We will make sure the police know that we will not stand for their violence. Have your voice be heard. You are not alone.
