You are invited to join in a weekly gathering to mourn and deepen our collective resolve to promote justice.
We will gather weekly on Fridays at 5 pm, starting this Friday, June 12, at Field Park in Williamstown (the green on the rotary). Together, we will join in respectful silence for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, in honor of George Floyd and the countless other Black people killed by police brutality and other forms of white supremacist violence. We aspire to practice this every week until the November election.
All are welcome. We hope that this weekly gathering may serve to deepen our commitment as a community to dismantle systemic racism. We recognize that Williamstown, too, must uproot white supremacy. Williamstown, too, must change so that those of us who are Black can breathe. We gather on Fridays to recognize these truths and recommit ourselves to the work.
Please wear a mask, practice social distancing, and invite your friends and family.
You are invited to bring signs or works of art if you are so moved. Anger is welcome. Rage is welcome. Grief is welcome. Exhaustion is welcome. We welcome all heartfelt expressions in honor of Black liberation and ending white supremacy.
Parking is available at the Williamstown Public Library and the Old Williams Inn.
Please spread the word!
