March for Racial Justice – Falmouth

October 1 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

M4RJ is the moment to stand with our brothers and sisters and stand up for each other in the face of increasing terror. We will stand strong together in love because we believe in a future where every single one of us, regardless of race, gender, sexuality, class, religion, and disabilities are given equal opportunity and protection of the law.

In recognition of the diversity of voices that are often overlooked and unheard, indigenous tribe members and people of color are invited to share their experiences of discrimination at the rally. Members of the Cape Verdean, Jamaican, Jewish, Wampanoag, Muslim, Brazilian, Asian, and other communities have been invited to give short testimonies about what life is like for an ethnic minority on Cape Cod. The event will close with remarks from Dr. Kristen Harper of the Unitarian Church of Barnstable on how to begin uniting Cape Codders of all racial and ethnic backgrounds.

The organizers plan to collect written testimonies in a leaflet, in the event that there are more personal experiences to be shared than time allows. Those who would like to contribute are encouraged to email their testimonies to engagefalmouth@gmail.com by September 29. The public is encouraged to RSVP on the event’s Facebook page and find out more information at www.m4rj.com/sister-marches. All are asked to attend with open hearts and minds.
