Black and Brown Solidarity Vigil for GEORGE FLOYD
The Pasadena branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and the National Association of Day Labors (NDLON) along with faith leaders from the Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance (IMA and the Community Clergy Coalition (CCC) lead a peaceful Vigil for George Floyd, who was murdered at the hands (knee) of police in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The death of Floyd is a continuation of murders of African American men. The sentiment by all is "Now is the time to speak up about it."
A parade of cars convened on Tuesday, June 2, at 5:00 pm, at Pasadena First AME Church and caravaned through the streets of Pasadena, practicing physical distancing, in peaceful protest for the death of George Floyd, to Pasadena City Hall. Speakers were heard from City Hall, FAME Pasadena church, the Pasadena Branch NAACP, NDLON, IMA and CCC to discuss healing and actions for change.
Those participating in the caravan included organizations such as Black Lives Matter, Alpha Phi Alpha Faternity, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, The Links, Deltas Sigma Theta, the Los Angeles Urban League, and others.
