Four days ago, Lafayette Police killed Trayford Pellerin, shooting him 11 times. Three days ago, Kenosha Police shot Jacob Blake 7 times in the back. To add to the violence in Kenosha, last night, white supremacists in Kenosha shot 3 protesters, killing 2. Tonight, we stand in solidarity with our neighbors, in solidarity against White Supremacy, and in commemoration of our fallen comrades, with a candlelight vigil at 7:30pm in Union Park. Please bring masks for yourself and extras, if you have them, to share. *We keep us safe.*
