Awareness March and Vigil
Saturday December 13, 2014
WHY: Because black lives don’t matter enough, to enough people, in the USA; because there is a problem with police brutality in the USA; because the justice system consistently fails black people in the USA
Our Purpose, Our Hope: Today, we Stand in Solidarity with the March on Washington and all those in the world protesting against injustice. We gather to raise awareness here in Korea and have a moment of silence for all the lives lost every 28 hours, and show an international community wanting to see a change in the equality of all persons everywhere.

Our over all purpose is to shed light on ALL the lives lost and reveal the current inequalities. Any funds raised will go to http://dreamdefenders.org/
