Stand Out for Equality and Justice
Heads-up! No rest for the righteous! To stand up and speak out locally in opposition to the white supremacist rally planned in Boston this Saturday, we are having yet another stand-out in Park Square on Saturday, August 19th, 2 – 3 pm.
The NAACP-Berkshire County Branch and the Four Freedoms Coalition are partnering with us for this event! Speakers will include State Rep. Tricia Farley-Bouvier, Pittsfield Mayor Linda M. Tyer, and Dennis Powell, President of the Berkshire NAACP.
Stand with us for non-violent witnessing to the spirit of equality and justice. We must oppose the hatred coming from the White House, now giving open approval and support to racists, anti-semites, white supremacists and neo-nazis.
Thank you to the Berkshire Theatre Group who will open the doors to the Colonial Theatre lobby at 111 South Street afterwards for rest and respite, and an opportunity to continue the conversation.
Hand-held signs only – no sticks, poles, etc. – This is being planned very quickly, so please watch for updates, and share, share, SHARE.
