Community Vigil in West Windsor Saturday
A community vigil supporting Black Lives Matter will be held in West Windsor Township on Saturday afternoon, according to Community News. All are welcome to join and start making a difference.
The Black Lives Matter Solidarity Vigil, in response to the murder of George Floyd by a police officer in Minneapolis, will be Saturday, June 13th, at West Windsor Community Park, at 1pm. The article says the event "will focus on encouraging unity and solidarity with George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Ahmaud Arbery and countless other brothers and sisters who’ve been racially targeted and killed.”
There are planned speakers to inspire the crowd and call for change needed in this country. There will be a moment of silence to reflect and for all to remember the lost lives.
You're encouraged to express yourself and share your beliefs with others on signs. Organizers are asking that you protect yourself by wearing a facial covering and by social distancing.
It looks like there's a slight chance for rain on Saturday, so be prepared. The high temperature will be in the lower 80s, so bring water as well, to stay hydrated.
Since Floyd's death, there have been many peaceful protests, demonstrations, and vigils throughout the area. Lawrence Township held a Youth Rally and peaceful march through the town on Sunday afternoon. Ewing Township held a candlelight vigil in Moody Park on Sunday night. There have also been events in Trenton, Robbinsville, and Princeton. There's a peaceful protest in Hamilton Township tonight at Sayen Gardens.
I can't wait to start seeing the changes this country desperately needs.
