Use Your Heels to Heal Our Community!
On Saturday May 3rd the Blueford family invites the community to join them in a walk around Lake Merritt to celebrate Alan Blueford’s life which was cut short by a violent, racist, out of control OPD officer.
This walk is not a protest, it is a time for community unity as we celebrate & honor Alan’s life. This walk is also a message to the Blueford’s & to the community the Alan’s life matters, all lives matter, including black & brown ones. We want to unite to send that message as we celebrate the life of one of Oakland’s lost sons, and along with Alan, all of our children lost to violence.
We will gather at McElroy Fountain at the corner of Grand Ave & Perkins St at noon and begin walking at 1pm, we will walk in the direction of traffic, clockwise, around the lake.
In true Oakland celebratory fashion, this walk will be complete with a sound truck & rappers up on the truck….details are unfolding as I type….please stay tuned!!**
In the meantime, please “join” & then “invite” all your friends & also “share” the event page EVERYWHERE!!! TOGETHER, we can make this event HUGE!!!
Please bring home made signs and banners honoring Alan and opposing police brutality.
Initiated by Alan Blueford’s family. If your community, political group, church, or union, would like to endorse, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
We encourage you to please spread the word via social media and word of mouth.
