August 8 Special Event: Protest & Politics Rally, Minnesota State Capitol, 1:30-4pm
This two-hour program includes featured speaker Pastor Dr. Tecoy Porter Senior, a St. Paul native and president of Sacramento National Action Network (founded by Rev. Al Sharpton).
In June, Black mothers rallied at the Minnesota Capitol in response to George Floyd calling out to his mother minutes before his tragic death at the hands of Minneapolis Police Department officers. In the last two months, Black mothers have spoken with thousands of voters and joined dozens of marches for anti-gun violence, police reform, and Black lives across Minnesota. Black Women Rising, Black Civic Network, and OneMN will continue the legacy of icon John Lewis by showing up for voting rights and advocating for representation in politics.
Organized with the help of Anika Bowie, who is our August Visual Q&A around Transforming Justice.
