National Moment of Silence to Honor George Floyd and Other Victims of Police Brutality

Two weeks after the the murder of George Floyd, the Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival is calling the nation for a Day of Fasting and Focus which will culminate at 5 pm EST / 2 pm PST 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
