March the Friendly City in support of the Black Lives Matter Movement

June 12, 2020

A march in support of the Black Lives Matter movement will be held Saturday, June 13 at 10 a.m. Attendees will assemble in the northeast parking lot of the Rohnert Park Community Center (Spreckels) at 5401 Snyder Ln. The 1.5 mile march will end at the Rohnert Park Police Department, 500 City Center Drive. 

 Please join this family-friendly, peaceful March for Justice. This wheelchair and stroller-friendly, safe, and inclusive, community event is being led by Jackie Elward, a group of local students, and their families. ‘‘Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced”- James Baldwin.

We would like to emphasize the peaceful intent of our gathering, and respectfully ask attendees and the public to help keep it that way. We encourage participants to bring signs, and walk or roll along the shaded Redwood path at your own pace and comfort level. 

Participants should arrange to be picked up near the Rohnert Park-Cotati Regional Library or be prepared to walk back to their vehicles. Due to the current shelter in place orders by Sonoma County Department of Public Health, facial coverings are required for participants over the age of 2 and social distancing measures are highly encouraged.

Jackie Elward is a current 4th District Rohnert Park City Council Candidate. She respectfully asks to keep the focus on Black lives and not her campaign.
