Virginia’s 5000 Man March Against Racism
Why are we are marching?
For your children… the black, the white, the tan, the pink, the yellow, and the blue. Because in this great state, no matter the color. Virginia is for lovers.
For #BLM because Black Lives Matter doesn’t mean your life doesn’t matter, it just means ours are in danger.
For the idea that every individual whom choose to march, takes a silent pledge to be a firm advocate against all the racism, discrimination, and hate that unfortunately still lives in this world.
A March Virginia won’t soon forget.
