Event Information

*UPDATE* This event has been postponed to a later date: June 16. We regret any inconvenience to the individuals registered. In Columbus, OH as around the country, we recognize that now is not the time for business as usual. There is nothing usual about the despicable actions of the four police officers in Minnesota, nor the brutal civil rights violations in our own community. There is nothing usual about law enforcement agencies nationwide violating the promise that they made to us: to protect and serve. There is everything usual about the systemic oppression of our Black brothers and sisters, and it fills us with sadness and anger and it must come to an end. We are pausing our immediate business-as-usual activities to educate ourselves about how we can provide the support that can heal our community. We are committed to using our platform to amplify Black voices so they are heard. We welcome your input on what actions we can take, stories you would like to share, and conversations we should have together. We will be sharing opportunities to get involved in our social media, and we invite the community to do the same with us. No justice, no peace. Know justice, know peace.
