1 pm
Former Google office on Canyon at 2590 Pearl Street, Boulder
Alt-right white supremacist protests against Google’s allegedly anti-white-male diversity policies were already being planned before the white-supremacist violence in Charlottesville this last weekend. There are now confirmed protests at Google offices in 9 cities. Boulder is listed in some publications in an effort to rally protesters, but so far it is not a confirmed site for a protest by the Alt-right. Boulder SURJ invites community members to take visible action against white supremacy. **This is a non-violent, zero-escalation event.**

Childcare will NOT be provided. Children are welcome to be in the meeting space at UUCB (10:30-12). Please use your own discretion when bringing children to the rally.

Please bring signs if you’d like. We’ll have some materials available as well. Sign suggestions include:
No Trump, No Hate, No KKK
White Silence is Violence
Resist
Which side are you on?
Black Lives Matter
Fight White Supremacy
Yes to Liberation! No to Deportation!
(Note: We encourage people to be thoughtful about the usage of popular hashtags, such as ThisIsNotUs, in an effort to name rather than erase this country’s history of colonization and enslavement.)

Note: SURJ is an organization focused on moving more white folks into action for racial justice, but this meeting will be a multi-racial space.

Press releases with contacts will be distributed to local media. Please email BoulderSURJ at Gmail dot com with questions.
