Michael Schroeder, NAACP Lebanon County Branch
The Lebanon County Branch of the NAACP and the Annville Town Square Protesters for Racial Justice have announced a joint protest action and rally from 4-5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 25 in the Annville, PA, Town Square to mourn and remember the victims of the Buffalo Race Massacre and to condemn White supremacy and the poisonous “Great Replacement Theory” that inspired the gunman and that is being promoted by so many extremists right-wing pundits and politicians.
The date of Wednesday’s protest and rally will also mark the two-year anniversary of the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police – and the 163rd protest action held by the Annville Town Square Protester for Racial Justice since they began their antiracist protests in early June 2020 in the wake George Floyd’s murder.
In preparation for Wednesday’s protest and rally, a sign-making gathering is being held from 1-3 p.m. on Sunday, May 22 at a private residence on Annville’s west side; please email us for the address, at [email protected]. We’ll have everything for making protest signs – cardboard, markers, paints, paintbrushes. All you’ll need to bring are your fresh ideas and creative energy.
