Important Action Alert for Knoxville, Tennessee
Join United Against Racism
ACF extends an invitation to all who are available to come and stand in solidarity with us for Trayvon Martin. Join us on
Wednesday, April 4, 2012 from 5pm-7pm in Krutch Park, Knoxville, Tennessee (adjacent to Market Square). Stand with us as we raise awareness about violence against Black men and youth of color. Stand with us as we protest the disproportionate imprisonment, vilification and murder of young Black men. Bring your church congregation, youth groups, students, community organizations, and family and friends. Join musicians, artists and speakers in advancing the cause of racial, economic, and gender justice in Knoxville and abroad.

A planning meeting will be held this evening (Tuesday, 3/27) at the Tribe One office (2112 East Magnolia Avenue) from 6:30-7:30pm.

Email united.against.racism.knox@gmail.com and let them know you plan to attend and to inquire about how you can help.
We hope to see you there!

Peace, love and light,
Margo Miller
