The Breonna Taylor case in Louisville, KY has heightened the demand for equality for Black lives here in the Carolinas. A grand jury charged one of three Louisville police officers with wanton endangerment. And further explained that the charge was NOT related to Taylor, but instead to her neighbors in the nearby apartment.
That announcement has not fallen on deaf ears in the Queen City. In fact, six area community organizations plan to march and rally for Black lives.
Kass Ottley with Seeking Justice CLT says it’s time Black voices are heard. Her organization will join Love ConquersAll, Wheels for Equality, Million Youth March of Charlotte & Salisbury, Take Back Our HOOD and Feed The Movement for a march and rally to save Black lives.
“No More Stolen Lives” March & Rally happens, Saturday, 26, 6pm at the Black Lives Matter mural, corner of Third and Fourth Streets, uptown Charlotte.
Immediately following is “Charlotte Unity Night” Protest & March, 8pm at First Ward Park.
Both events are free and open to the public. Organizations encourage those interested in supporting their work to contact them directly. (see links above)
