To all friends and allies in pursuit of racial healing and justice:
For Partner Organizations:
Our goal is to have 5 -10 members of several organizations represented at the podium and take the Richmond Pledge together. After the presentation, we want people to meet folks from YOUR organizations and make connections. CTTT-RVA wants the general public to be able to connect with members of BLM, Broken Men Foundation, RISC, VCIC, IofC and many more local groups who are doing the work! We want Richmonders to discover actions they can take to make a difference. This event is outside on the spacious VMHC front lawn where we will wear masks and observe social distancing while we also “get closer” in the work of social justice. We are asking a representative from each organization to approach the mic and deliver the following about themselves and the work of their organization:
My name is ________________ and I believe ___________________. I am a part of (or member of) ______(organization)______ because_______________. Today, I (we) stand together committed to_________________. We are making the dream a reality in RVA.
Before or during the walk, we will identify folks to approach the mic and read a few lines of the “I Have A Dream” speech. We are asking all groups that are working for social justice to be present for the UNITY WALK and the presentation on the steps of the museum. Please arrive by 5:15 pm if possible.
