Inauguration Day March: Defund. Divest. Demilitarize.
If you thought 2020 was hot, we’re turning up the heat in 2021! Bundle up and join us on the evening of President Joe Biden’s Inauguration as we continue to push our demands to create a more just and equitable future for all.
On January 20th at 5:30 PM we will be meeting Dale & University in St. Paul, MN where we will demand the following from both the president and our Minnesota Elected Officials:
1) A National Defunding of Police Departments – Invest Those Funds Into Community Resources.
2)A National Demilitarization of Police Forces.
3) Reopen ALL Cases of Police Murder.
4) End Qualified Immunity.
5) Abolish the Death Penalty.
Additionally, we will be collecting cold weather gear at this march to donate to our unhoused neighbors – if you can, please bring winter coats, boots, socks, hats, gloves, ear muffs, hand and body warmers, etc. OR donate through Venmo @visualblackjustice under the business tab, and we’ll use the money to purchase the above items.
Public Safety: Please dress warm and wear a mask!
