BLACK LIVES MATTER VIGIL
Saturday 12-1
Fruitvale & MacArthur

N4RJ (Neighbors for Racial Justice) will hold our weekly 1-hour vigil again this Saturday. We are standing up for BLACK LIVES.

We hope that folks who are outraged and grieving over the shooting deaths of Tyre King, Terence Crutcher, and Keith Scott at the hands of law enforcement in the last week will join us.

We will not be holding our vigil on Saturday, October 1 due to Oaktoberfest, but we will have a booth, so please stop by.

"When lives are considered ungrievable, to grieve them openly is protest. So when people assemble in the street, arrive at rallies or vigils, demonstrate with the aim of opposing this form of racist violence, they are “speaking back” to this mode of address, insisting on what should be obvious but is not, namely, that these lost lives are unacceptable losses." ---Judith Butler
