3/20 Coalition To Host Weekly Teach-Ins Throughout July

The 3/20 Coalition will gather three times this month to host events in support of Black Mental Health Awareness Month and racial justice movements.

The group will host sponsored teach-ins at the Allen Street Gates to educate community members on the challenges facing the Black community. The events, scheduled for three Sundays this month — July 12, July 19, and July 26 — will each feature unique themes, including mental health and Black women and trans awareness. Coinciding with the group’s name, each teach-in will last three hours and 20 minutes.

Attendees are encouraged to wear face masks, bring water, and social distance as best they can.

The 3/20 Coalition is a local advocacy group that formed following the death of State College resident Osaze Osagie. Osagie was fatally shot in his home by a State College police officer serving a mental health warrant back in March 2019. Since then, the group has hosted multiple protests against police brutality and in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Weekly updates, schedules, and sign suggestions for the teach-in events will be posted on the 3/20 Coalition’s Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
