#SAYHERNAME – A Vigil in Remembrance of Black Women and Girls Killed by the Police

Wednesday, May 20 at 5:30pm
Union Square (Southside) 

Background: Although Black women are killed, raped and beaten by the police, their experiences are rarely foregrounded in our popular understanding of racialized state violence.

Join us in remembering Black women and girls who have been victimized by the police, but whose experiences are all too often relegated to the margins.

If the loss of their lives matters;
If the grief of their families matters;
If the impunity with which all Black lives can be taken matters;
Then we cannot allow these tragedies to remain unmarked, silenced and forgotten.

This vigil is being held the evening prior to May 21st, a national day of action to end state violence against Black women called by BYP100.
