February 6 Vigil in Support of Black Lives Matter Welcomes Sheila North

February 6 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

The February 6 Vigil in Support of Black Lives Matter is pleased to welcome as guest speaker Canadian Sheila North, an Indigenous community change leader and film producer, whose 2019 documentary "1200+" examines the crisis of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls. Following her remarks, there will be a "call and response" reading of names of victims of racist violence and a 20-minute Silent Vigil along Centre Street to witness for racial justice and human rights. Everyone is invited to participate in this monthly event. For further information, contact Bonnie McBride at bonlynmcbride@yahoo.com or Penny Wells at pennywells@aol.com (Please note that the film "1200+" will be shown on Friday, February 7 at 7 pm at the JP Unitarian Church, 6 Eliot Street.)
