Join Us on Saturday, June 13th

Many of our neighbors have heard the call to deliver justice for George Floyd and bring an end to the police brutality that threatens the lives of black people across America.

Map of the route for the 8:46 @ 8:46 march.

Dutchtown families have come together to organize a march to provide a safe and peaceful way to show solidarity with George Floyd’s family and the Black Lives Matter movement. We desire an event where we can lift up the voices of our youth — many of whom have been looking for a safe outlet to stand up and speak out about injustice.

Neighbors and supporters can gather in the parking lot of the Neighborhood Innovation Center, 3207 Meramec at Compton. The march will depart from there at 8:46am (8 minutes and 46 seconds was the amount of time George Floyd was fatally pinned down by Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin). We will head south on Compton, west on Osceola, north on Grand, and east on Meramec back to the NIC.

Although we will be outdoors for this event, we still encourage participants to wear masks and practice safe social distancing. It’s also recommended that you bring water, comfortable walking shoes, and signs.

Please share our event on Facebook or tell people to visit dutchtownstl.org/846. You can also download a flyer to print and distribute.

We’ll be live-streaming the march on Facebook in case you can’t join us.

Voter Registration

We will also be providing information on and assistance with voter registration. If you have never registered or if you need to update your registration, we can help. For more information about voter registration visit dutchtownstl.org/vote.

Muchos de nuestros vecinos han escuchado el llamado para hacer justicia a George Floyd y poner fin a la brutalidad policial que amenaza las vidas de los negros en todo Estados Unidos.

Map of the route for the 8:46 @ 8:46 march.

Las familias de Dutchtown se han unido para organizar una marcha para proporcionar una manera segura y pacífica de mostrar solidaridad con la familia de George Floyd y el movimiento Black Lives Matter. Deseamos un acontecimiento en el que podamos alzar las voces de nuestros jóvenes, muchos de los cuales han estado buscando una salida segura para levantarse y hablar sobre la injusticia.

Vecinos y simpatizantes pueden reunirse en el estacionamiento del Neighborhood Innovation Center, 3207 Meramec en Compton. La marcha partirá desde allí a las 8:46 am (8 minutos y 46 segundos fue la cantidad de tiempo que George Floyd fue fatalmente inmovilizado por el oficial de policía de Minneapolis Derek Chauvin). Nos dirigiremos al sur en Compton, al oeste en Osceola, al norte en Grand, y al este en Meramec de vuelta a la NIC.

Aunque estaremos al aire libre para este evento, todavía animamos a los participantes a usar máscaras y practicar distanciamiento social seguro. También se recomienda que traiga agua, zapatos cómodos para caminar y letreros.
