BLACK CAKE COLLECTIVE: UNITY MARCH

UNITY MARCH

What Can You Do?! 8/1/2020


On August 1st we will peacefully march and protest the police brutality and corrupted system that has been in place for so long. We will also be feeding the homeless along the way and have chefs & sponsors donating their time. To-go meal pick ups for the homeless or less fortunate will be available on site at the Central T Stop Plaza/Cambridge Commons. Music & Speakers TBA!


We will begin at Donnelly Field and be practicing social distancing throughout the whole day (as you should be 24/7). Free masks will be available. Meet at 4pm. Begin marching at 5pm.

We will be handing out homeless/less fortunate care packages & meals along the march and have a “TAKE WHAT YOU NEED” drop off station at Central T Bus Stop area. 


Can’t attend and still want to donate to the cause? Donate whatever you can to the newly founded Black Cake Collective. Our goal is simple: keep the momentum of this GLOBAL movement going while also coming together to educate each other on what we can do to work together. All while feeding and supporting the less fortunate with food/supplies. We really want people conversing with unfamiliar faces and allies especially! HAVE THOSE UNCOMFORTABLE CONVERSATIONS AND NETWORK/COLLABORATE WITH OTHERS!!! 


The money will go to:


-Water & Snacks

-Reflective Vests for marshalls and volunteers

-Food for chefs to prepare

-Supplies for meal/sanitary kits

-Sound and Equipment for mobile DJ Van (They all would do this for free but I would personally like to at least tip the sponsors)

-Future protests & events

-Things I honestly can’t think of right now but will pop up

SPEAKERS:
-Darrell Jones (Wrongfully put into the Prison system for 35+ years)
