We are meeting at Cesar Chavez Park on 10th street between I Street and J Street. The location of the sit in will be discussed, and from the park, we will head to the location of the sit in. It is within walking distance for those that walk.

*IMPORTANT: This will be a silent protest.
**IMPORTANT: Signs should be on regular pieces of paper, and able to be folded up and put in your pocket.
***IMPORTANT: Signs can say what you want but we would love it if a lot of us had signs that said :
"Why Are You Letting Them Kill Us"

The goal is to pressure on our elected officials, to create laws that end violence and inequality toward people of color. We are trying to end systemic racism.
