March Like A Mother For Black Lives on Copley Square
George Floyd summoned all mothers when he called out, “Mama,” as he died. Now, black mothers of Boston summon all mothers and allies to stand in solidarity against anti-blackness and racism at a rally on Copley Square set for Saturday, June 27, from 12 -2 p.m. We will center the voices and experiences of black mothers, even as we invite the support of all who stand for black lives, black joy, and black prosperity.
Masks, hand sanitizer, and water will be on-hand, and we encourage everyone to social distance – Boston moms need to stay healthy and well during these of all days. For those who cannot participate in-person, a livestream of the rally will be available at trinitychurchboston.org/live-rally.
Organizer Latoya Gayle, Executive Director of Boston School Finder and an active mother of three, invited the support of Trinity Church and Trinity Boston Connects for the June 27 rally. Honored to stand with her and in solidarity with all in our city working to eradicate racism, we invite our congregation and communities to support the rally with your participation in prayer and presence, as you are able.
Whether or not you can join in person, we welcome those who have been making masks to share their work, so that we can offer a mask to every attendee. If necessary, members of the parish will come to your home or make arrangements to collect your masks for the event. Likewise, we welcome volunteers to bring and distribute water.
