IMPORTANT UPDATE ABOUT SUNDAY: PLEASE READ!!!
There will be a commemoration event for Tamir Rice happening this Sunday at 3:30pm. CU Radical Reading group organizers had previously discussed the anniversary of Tamir’s murder and wanted to honor his life and challenge police brutality. The local Black Lives Matter chapter has very recently (this week) organized something so now we find ourselves in an awkward spot. The CU Radical Reading group would like to stand in solidarity with our Black friends and neighbors. It is in this solidarity that we have decided to cancel Sunday’s meeting in order to attend this event for Tamir Rice and remember his life and support his family’s struggle for justice. Below is the information about this Sunday’s event. Please show up in solidarity, putting our recent readings about police and racism into direct action.
Thank you for your understanding,
“On Sunday, November 22 Black Lives Matter CU will be having an event commemorating the one year anniversary of Tamir Rice’s death.
