Join us Monday June 8th, two weeks after George Floyd’s death, for a Day of Fasting and Focus which will culminate at 5:00pm when we are asking people to stop where you are for 8 minutes and 46 seconds in silence in honor of the time George Floyd had the literal knee of the state on his neck.
Whether in your homes, at work or in the streets, we are calling for people of conscience to stop wherever they are to join us for a live-streamed moment of silence, litany and a message of support for the uprisings across the country and a call for organizing a movement in this moment from Bishop William J. Barber, II, co-chair of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. You can tune in at fb.com/anewppc and click here for a litany you can read after the moment of silence.
As part of this National Day of Fasting and Focus we will be holding a We Won’t Be Silent Virtual Art Build at 12 pm EST/ 9am PST to be together and heal together through art-making, share messages of justice and get prepared for the day of action. Register here.
