A Day of Remembrance for George Floyd
Time Out says
Take part in the Breathe for Eight Program, a national collective that recognizes the importance of standing up for black lives and the value of each individual in the racial justice movement, in Southside Jamaica, Queens. Breathe for Eight will be a 8 minute and 46 second meditation in remembrance of George Floyd and all the victims of violence in our society. The meditation will be followed by a discussion on the importance of mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. Movement leaders will also be sharing direct actions that we can take to truly reach justice for all. Healthy food packages will be distributed along with other acts of community service, and there will be a silent protest march.
You can attend in person at Baisley Pond Park in South Jamaica, Queens (entrance at corner of Foch Blvd and Long Street) or watch a live stream online. Just be sure to be careful and take necessary social distancing precautions and wear a mask if you go.
