Troy is showing our support for Black Lives Matter and we are calling you to action.
We encourage all people who are concerned about where our Nation is heading to attend. The goal of this event is to create a safe space for all, allowing those who feel personally affected by recent events to be supported, to join like minded people and to work toward being collective agents of change. We must come together to move forward!
We will be raising money for our local chapter of Black Lives Matter: Upstate NY and calling on you to be an agent of change.
DJ Tru will be providing us with music & love.
“This is Not a Moment, but a Movement… Rooted in the experiences of Black people in this country who actively resist our dehumanization, #BlackLivesMatter is a call to action and a response to the virulent anti-Black racism that permeates our society… Black Lives Matter affirms the lives of Black queer and trans folks, disabled folks, black-undocumented folks, folks with records, women and all Black lives along the gender spectrum. It centers those that have been marginalized within Black liberation movements. It is a tactic to (re)build the Black liberation movement… When we say Black Lives Matter, we are broadening the conversation around state violence to include all of the ways in which Black people are intentionally left powerless at the hands of the state. We are talking about the ways in which Black lives are deprived of our basic human rights and dignity.” -blacklivesmatter.com
