The events of the past few weeks, layered on top of a history of racism and violence against black people in the US, have further fueled the anger and sadness of our communities. People are rising up in protest of George Floyd's killing - among countless other racially-driven acts of violence and injustice - but many don't know what to do or how to express what they are feeling. Here's an additional option to show your support: The Rock It for Justice 5K/10K. Being outdoors - running, hiking, walking - can clear the mind, release stress and anger, inspire ideas, and bring us together in a positive way. Although we still need to stay socially distant, we can run virtually together (or in small groups) in a show of support and a push for justice. This virtual event is free, and the only requirement is that you wear black as you complete the distance. Tech shirts are available for purchase and all proceeds go to the Equal Justice Initiative www.eji.org. The price covers the shirt, mailing, and the proceeds will go to EJI.org.The Equal Justice Initiative is committed to ending mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the United States, to challenging racial and economic injustice, and to protecting basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society.
If you'd like you can add a personal donation to the Equal Justice Initiative in the registration process. Please share on social media #rockitforjustice
Event details and schedule
Rock It for Justice - 5K or 10K - preferably on a trail, but if you can't do that, run anywhere. Be safe, keep your social distance, and think about the actions you will take to eliminate racism and injustice in your community. What you say and do influences others and you can make a difference -- big or small -- it all adds up. Thank you.
