We are meeting up on the corner of Rooselvelt and Michigan Ave. We will be on the move by 10:00 AM. Get there early! Do not be late! (If you have signed up to be a marshall, then plan to be there by 9:30.) We will be holding a short pre-rally then marching to the stadium to demonstrate. If you are unable to make the walk, we plan to have marshalls at the location to assist you in joining at the final location.

Feel free to bring signage in support of Kap, his message and justice! Bring your energy! Get fired up! Let the folks know why you are there!

 

WHAT?
We will be staging protests at the first game played at every NFL stadium this season.

WHY?
Colin Kaepernick’s peaceful protest of police brutality and other racial injustices has led to him being blackballed by the NFL.

NFL owners have either decided to punish Kaepernick for taking this stand OR that it’s best for business to sweep these issues under the rug. Either option is UNACCEPTABLE!

The issues Colin raised cannot be ignored, and the people he is fighting for will not be taken for granted.

The NFL will continue to silence and punish players who speak out against oppression unless we make them pay in terms of their image, ratings, and sales.

BY STANDING 4 KAEPERNICK, WE ARE STANDING FOR PLAYERS’ ABILITY TO RAISE AWARENESS BY TAKING SMALL STEPS SUCH AS NOT STANDING FOR THE NATIONAL ANTHEM WITHOUT LOSING THEIR JOBS.
