Saturday, August 19, the 9 a.m. Vigil for Racial Justice, which is held each week on the Greenfield Common, will offer an opportunity to react to recent events in Charlottesville VA and to commit/recommit social change and justice.
According to Gloria Matlock, one of the vigil organizers, “We support the people who were killed in Charlottesville. That young women and those policemen who were killed, they were white. Our country’s racism and hatred are affecting all of us, and we all need to be part of the solution. Just showing up and taking a stand makes a difference.”
Everyone is welcome at the vigil, which is organized by Racial Justice Rising and the Visioning B.E.A.R. Intertribal Coalition.
