We are resilient: Rally for George Floyd

Join the Mayor’s Office of Resilience and Racial Equity as we rally to remember the life of George Floyd on May 29 at 1 p.m. in Nubian Square.

Collectively, we will commit to cultivating resilient communities for those that have been subject to pain and suffering at the hands of a racist and unjust system. We will demand racial equity and police accountability through radical imagination. We will mobilize art as a form of healing and political protest.

This Rally will be hosted by the Mayor’s Office of Resilience and Racial Equity in partnership with the Mayor’s Office of Arts and Culture, King Boston, Black Market, and The Roxbury Cultural District. The event will feature community artists and leaders. Social distancing will be adhered to, and masks are encouraged.
