Join a March for Justice Tonight in Saybrook, Hear Booker Speak on Foundational Change for Anti-racism

Signs were held high at a previous rally as the marchers crossed Main Street in Old Saybrook.

OLD SAYBROOK/LYME/OLD LYME — The Old Saybrook March for Justice is an inclusive and welcoming coalition of friends and neighbors, who care deeply about basic human rights. Today, Wednesday, July 29, all are welcome to meet at the Kate at 6 p.m. for a teach-in followed immediately by a peaceful march up and down Main St. All are requested to wear masks.

The speaker at this evening’s event will be New London City Councilor Kevin Booker on making foundational change for anti-racism.

The group’s mission statement states, ” We are outraged by centuries of structural racism in this country. We stand with Black Lives Matter. We listen, learn and act. We understand that silence is not an option and we will not be bystanders to white supremacy.”

It continues, “We aim to be allies and antiracist. We are respectful, nonpartisan and inclusive. We welcome all who share our values. We educate ourselves and join in weekly marches.”
