Please join the Susquehanna Valley community at large for a virtual vigil in honor of victims of police brutality and racial profiling in collaboration with the emerging Lycoming Tri-County NAACP. This is an opportunity to honor people like George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breona Taylor and stand in solidarity with black lives. In this area we are focusing on evening vigils. In addition, there will be online programming running all day tomorrow, Sunday, May 31, starting with a noon Kneel and Remember Rally centered in Philly, but able to be joined remotely. The day will end with a virtual candlelight vigil at 9pm (8:50 to 9:30pm). It has been structured to allow people to participate and protest without heightening the chance of Coronavirus transmission. Everyone is asked to incorporate masks and distancing into their observances, as makes sense for those involved and local guidelines.
To join the evening Vigil-in-Place, you can either conduct your own vigil offline, observe online, or participate through Zoom. To access the Zoom, use this link: bit.ly/Vigil-in-Place. Please note that registration is required. If you do not want to be directly part of the Zoom gallery of candlelight, the Zoom will also be streamed through facebook (https://bit.ly/TheHUB4Progress) and youtube (https://bit.ly/VigilInPlaceYoutTube) with links available through The HUB for Progress. For those participating entirely offline, please consider taking a photo of your observance and sending it to info@theHUB4progress.org so that it can be incorporated into the program. Photos can be taken from earlier in the day as well, if you have made signs or decided to take a knee.
If you would like to be more involved, when you register for the Zoom session, you can also volunteer to do a reading or offer a testimonial during the event.
