June Vigil in Support of Black Lives Matter
June 2 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
The June Vigil in Support of Black Lives Matter will be held Thursday, June 2, 5:30-6:30 pm, at the First Baptist Church in Jamaica Plain at 633 Centre Street. This month’s Vigil will be a remembrance of the 31 children and adults killed in the mass shootings in Uvalde and Buffalo, the latter an act of racially motivated violence. After a “call and response” reading of names of the victims, we will hold a 20-minute standout along Centre Street, followed by a reading of Poet and Activist Amanda Gorman’s new poem “Hymn for the Hurting,” and the Black Lives Matter chant. Everyone is invited to join us for however long you are able to participate.
