Monday, June 8, 2020 will mark the 11th consecutive day of peaceful Milwaukee protests sparked by the murder of George Floyd. Here are just a few of the day’s events, sure to be joined by many more.
Goodwill (1408 Summit Ave.)
There will be a PEACEFUL Protest taking place in Oconomowoc, Wi. Monday morning. We will be starting in the parking lot by Goodwill and walking down to the Oconomowoc Police Station. All we is ask, is to keep it peaceful on our side, but also make sure our voices are heard! We ask that you do not bring children. And that you bring plenty of water to drink! It’s supposed to be a hot one! Come and support the #BlackLivesMatter Movement and show a town like Oconomowoc, WI. that just because it’s happening around them doesn’t mean it can’t happen in their town. Police brutality, racism lives EVERYWHERE and we need people to open their eyes! ❤️ Let’s stay safe out there you guys! And remember, we’re all in this together. ✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿
Sherman Park (3000 N. Sherman Blvd.)
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
Join us for a community art build and march as we demand divestment from the Milwaukee Police Department, and investment into our community. It is time that we reclaim the 414. This is our city. This is our home.
We will have an art build starting at 1PM, followed by a march to Red Arrow Park.
This event is organized and led by young women of color from Milwaukee.
