3/20 Coalition To Host Vigil, Protest For Breonna Taylor Starting September 25
The 3/20 coalition, a local advocacy group, will host a candlelight vigil and protest demanding justice for Breonna Taylor on September 25 and 26.
The vigil, will take place on Friday, September 25, and start at 8:00 p.m. in the Martin Luther King Jr. Plaza, located off South Fraser street near Target. The protest, on Saturday, September 26 will start at noon at the Allen Street Gates.
Other organizations like Black Caucus and Black Student-Athletes will be organizing the event alongside the 3/20 coalition.
All summer long, the 3/20 coalition and many other organizations in State College have been protesting downtown against police brutality and racial injustice. The coalition hosted hosting weekly teach-ins through the month of July in support of Black Mental Health Awareness Month and racial justice movements.
This specific vigil and protest continue the work these protesters started over the summer, but most recently is protesting against the indictment of only one police officer in the Breonna Taylor case.
“Our three organizations not only recognize the need for our community to come together to honor Breonna’s life, but also the ever-imperative duty to challenge authority and demand justice by any means necessary,” Black Caucus President Nyla Holland said. “We encourage all those who believe the same to come out and support these actions.”
