On July 31, 2016, we challenged Americans to come together and reflect on the radical legacy of Dr. King. We were tired of the White-washing and ahistorical revisions of his life, work, and legacy and decided to make a statement. We called for unity across the country and we asked for people to create safe spaces to gather in solidarity and remembrance, commitment and forward progress.

 

 

We invited people around the country to organize “sit-ins”, gatherings that would:

  • Center the radical fight for freedom

  • Draw international attention to the systematic execution of Black Americans and the terrorism inflicted upon us by racist institutions

  • Celebrate the joy, love, and hope of our future in defiant acts of community and peace

  • Call everyone around the country to commit themselves in the fight to eradicate racism, sexism, queer/transphobia, xenophobia poverty, injustice, and all violations of civil and human rights and liberties.

Now, we need YOU to keep the tradition alive!!

We are a group of DEDICATED organizers taking part in a national act of peaceful resistance, an act of defiant JOY, a sit in on the every street named after the man who gave his life to move us closer to freedom and liberation.

 

We need people from all over the country to join us in making this a momentous occasion for the second year in a row.

Are you one?
