a peaceful protest, please also wear face mask and please do your best to practice social distancing. Also bring your loud voice, your creative signs

Too much energy has been spent trying to fix the same problems, fighting with the same people.

Due to the tragic murder of George Floyd and the murder of other unarmed Black members of society, we as Black LGBTQ community members need to speak out about not only the deadly use of force at the hands of police officers but also speak about antiblackness in the LGBTQ community.

Our voices are being silenced by all the hate and violence, and it needs to stop.

national call about the current resistance and how we can show up In Defense of Black Lives.

Cities across the country have erupted in protest and many are in flames. The horrific and violent murders of George Floyd, Nina Pop, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Ahmaud Arbery, and Dreasjon Reed are inexcusable.

The compounding crisis of COVID-19 and increased police brutality speaks to the interconnected nature of white supremacy, racial capitalism, and the role of state sanctioned terrorism. Our communities continue to be overpoliced and under-served. That is the backdrop to righteous anger and uprisings we have seen these past few weeks.

7. Saturday, 12Noon – 3:00pm, Refuse Fascism: Protest in San Francisco, D.C., and Everywhere

Gather at:

24th & Mission St.
SF

Day after day, night after night, coast to coast, the streets fill with Black youth refusing to face another day in fear and people of all backgrounds who have had enough of white supremacy and a culture of soul-crushing cruelty. Millions have been shaken awake.

Trump has thrown down a heavy gauntlet to the people who have been heroically protesting in the face of heightened repression. Yet the people have not cowered. For the first time under this regime, the people have seized the initiative and have not let go. In contrast to the hate and bigotry of the Trump/Pence regime, these protests are infused with a love for humanity, and those in power seem more out of touch and illegitimate by the day.

This fascist regime poses a catastrophic danger to the whole world, and the whole world will take heart if we rise to another level of determined resistance. Let us change the course of history, not for ourselves alone but for all humanity.

8. Saturday, 1:00pm – 3:00pm, Hayward Solidarity Protest

Meet:

Hayward City Hall
Hayward

We are standing in solidarity with the families who have lost their loved ones to police violence/brutality. We are standing up in support of #BlackLivesMatter and demand that we end the Police State that we are in.

Our Demands:

1. #DefundThePoliceDepartment: Black Lives Matter National is calling for the local and state governments to Defund the Police Department.
2. Holding the Hayward Police Department Accountable: We must hold the Hayward Police Department accountable for their actions. They recently shot Eric “Gato” in his own front yard without any de-escalation. As well as the shooting of a “Augie” Agustin Gonsalez.
3. The Hayward Unified School District must terminate its relationship with the Hayward Police Department: We do not need the police in schools. This only causes more young black and brown youth to fear for their lives.

as we come together in the City of Hayward for Justice. Lets keep some of this important information with us:

1. Please wear a mask and try to maintain a 6 feet distance.
2. Please try to not come alone, bring a partner with you for Safety persuasions.
3. Please follow the crowd.
4. Please follow the security team in place that we have, along with the leaders of the march to insure the safety everyone.

WHAT TO BRING:

– Signs, Noise makers, Drums, and Bullhorns.
– Water & Milk.
– Bandages & First Aid Supplies.
– Sage or other incents

9. Saturday, 1:30pm – 3:00pm, Naming The Lost, Fighting for Our Lives

Register here: https://www.actionnetwork.org/forms/join-us-to-grieve-and-take-action-on-june-6

Online vigil with In-person component to be captured live. ASL and Closed Captioning will be provided.

Join us on Saturday, June 6th to grieve those lost in nursing homes, and to call for policy, testing, and PPE that will protect nursing home workers and residents alike.

Join us to envision a future long-term care system that honors and affirms the lives of Black and Brown people, of people with disabilities and older adults, rather than endangers them through racist, ableist and ageist policies that allow nursing homes to put profits before their residents or workers.

Together, we will:
Honor those who have died from Covid-19 inside nursing homes

Call for protection for residents and workers–increased staffing, full testing, needed protective equipment, sick leave and hazard pay for workers, and all necessary medical care for residents

Demand that nursing home companies put people before profits, rather than seek immunity for deaths in their facilities.

Urge Governor Newsom to accept the Senate and Assembly’s budget proposal that would protect critical long-term care programs and make cuts to prisons.

The racist police murder of George Floyd, the soaring death toll from the pandemic, and the explosion in unemployment and hunger all show the kind of future we can expect under the system of capitalism. As people take to the streets to protest the brutal murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, a different possibility is posed.

We are beginning to see the power we have. We can do more than disrupt this system. We do the work to make it run.  We can change it to work for us all.

We don’t want to go back to normal because normal was the problem!

Join us for a discussion about these important times.

11. Saturday, 4:00pm – 7:00pm, BlackBrownShutItDown

Meet at:

Southside Park 8th St.
2115 6th St.
Sacramento

#BlackBrownShutItDown is a coalition of self-identified Brown community members who stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. We recognize the disproportionate impact of police violence against our Black communities and demand that City and County elected officials, including the Sacramento Mayor, City Council, Board of Supervisors, and District Attorney, immediately abolish curfews, withdraw the National Guard’s occupation of our city, release and drop all charges of arrested protestors, and reallocate police funding to community based programs for youth, outdoors, education, healthcare, the arts, and community enrichment.
The time to end massive policing budgets, and the militarization of local police, is now.

 Local budgets face a looming shortfall due to COVID 19. We urge city and county leaders to grasp this historic opportunity to change our local budget priorities in order to center the health and well-being of all Sacramentans. To further this end, we demand city leaders cut police funding, which currently represents approximately 45% of the general budget, to 20% or less. We expect to see CARES Act funds used to protect our most vulnerable communities, rather than to increase the militarization of local police. And finally, we demand that the 2020/21 Measure U funds allocated to funding police activities, $41,727,000 (52% of the budget) be reallocated to youth, parks, and community enrichment.

Militarized police, behaving as an occupying force, do not make us safer. Sacramento police and sheriffs must be demilitarized. They must stop killing and brutalizing our Black and Brown communities. And they must be held accountable for acts of violence perpetrated under guise of law. Officers who have engaged in violence against members of the community must be removed immediately. City and county officials have a responsibility to stop
capitulating to the demands of law enforcement unions, and ensure that officers can be swiftly removed when they engage in egregious acts.

12. Saturday, 8:00pm – 10:00pm, 6 Feet & Grieving : A COVID 19 Remembrance

3401 East 12th St.
Oakland, 94601

Gather at the Lake Merritt Amphitheater on Saturday, June 6th, at 8pm for a candlelight vigil.

An evening to remember and honor the lives lost to COVID-19. As the death toll approaches 100,000 in the US, and social distancing restrictions are lifted in a patchwork fashion nationwide, we will safely gather to grieve and remember those lost.

Gather at the Lake Merritt Amphitheater on Saturday, June 6th, at 8pm for a candlelight vigil. We will remember individuals and groups of people who have passed, due to both action and inaction. Bring your memories, your joy, and your pain. Bring candles, flowers, and pictures, or anything else to hold or add to a community altar. Together we will honor our people while wearing masks and maintaining physical distance, because Solidarity is Safety.

Artists with the SF Projection Dept. will honor victims lost to the virus by projecting outdoor #COVIDmemorial messages and photos shared by loved ones.
