3/20 Coalition To Host ‘Justice For Black Lives’ Protest June 7

The State College community will unite for the second time in recent weeks at 6 p.m. on Sunday, June 7 at the Allen Street Gates to continue protesting police brutality and racial injustice.

The protest will arrive just a week after hundreds gathered in downtown State College to demand justice following the deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and other unarmed black men and women.

The event is organized by the 3/20 Coalition, a local advocacy group that formed after the death of State College resident Osaze Osagie. Osagie was fatally shot in his own home by a State College police officer completing a mental health check-in March of 2019. A candlelit vigil was held in Osagie’s honor shortly after his death in the same spot the protest will take place.

Since Osagie’s death, the 3/20 Coalition has continued its advocacy efforts. In recent weeks, it has sent out an interest form for new members interested in organizing and participating in events.

If you’re unable to join the coalition’s protest, consider taking a look at other ways to get involved with these movements, including signing petitions and select fundraisers.
