SUNDAY, JUNE 16TH
JOIN THE MIGRANT RIGHTS NETWORK AND #PTBOUNITEDAGAINSTRACISM FOR
SOLIDARITY SUNDAY: AN ANTI-RACIST SIDEWALK SPREE
We will gather at 2pm in Confederation Park, share some words and then spread out throughout downtown to poster solidarity and anti-racist messages and to work together to chalk anti-racist messaging, art, poetry and love into the sidewalks of downtown Peterborough
This is an all ages event and those who cannot attend are invited to chalk messages in front of their houses or in their neighbourhoods.
Each time we’ve postered, our messaging has been quickly torn down or defaced. But we will not be deterred. #UNITEAGAINSTRACISM. #PTBOUNITEDAGAINSTRACISM. With love in our hearts, we will continue to communicate our love, respect, recognition, honouring and thanks to migrants and to BIPOC community members. With fire in our souls, we will speak out against racism, white supremacism,xenophobia, colonialism, anti-Semitism, anti-migrant hatred, environmental racism and border imperialism. We will fill our streets with art and creative expressions of solidarity, care, compassion and loving communication.
