Next ‘March for Justice’ to be Held in Old Lyme, Sept. 23

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

OLD LYME — The next March for Justice will be held Wednesday, Sept. 23, at 5:30 p.m. in front of the First Congregational Church of Old Lyme.

The March for Justice is an inclusive and welcoming coalition of friends and neighbors, who care deeply about basic human rights. Join them if you wish to hear about their plans and strategies to address equity and justice in our communities.

All are requested to wear masks at the event.

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.”
