March for Racial Justice - Holyoke, MA

On October 1, we will mobilize individuals, groups, and community organizations from Western Massachusetts to march in solidarity with the National March for Racial Justice. Our goal is to harness dissatisfaction with the systemic violence, discrimination and hate that plagues our society and to turn that unrest into a mobilization that strengthens efforts for racial equity and justice. We invite you to stand with us and make your voices heard. Together we can stand against oppression and challenge policies and practices that dehumanize people of color, communities of faith, persons living with disabilities, immigrants and our LGBTQ+ community. United, our voices are much more powerful than when divided. United we are a movement. United we can march forward towards equality and racial justice.

We have an abundance of gratitude and appreciation for the following groups and organizations who have signed on to cosponsor this event:
