We'll be closed today rather than having our usual Friday open hours, and we challenge anyone who would normally either hang at Marrow or spend Black Friday shopping, to come to this march instead : #BlackLivesMatterFriday - The March on Portland
Family friendly event, rain or shine. 1pm - 10pm, Holladay City Park, NE Portland.
From the Facebook event page:
#BlackFriday Cheap Deals do NOT matter - #BLACKLIVESMATTER
WE NEED TO COME TOGETHER AND BE UNITED AS ONE AGAINST injustice, racism, oppression, police brutality and get JUSTICE for Freddie Gray, Mike Brown, Tamir Rice, Tony Robison, Sandra Bland and hundreds of other unarmed people of color KILLED BY POLICE.
Bring signs and bring cardboard and markers so other people can make signs.
NO WORK -- NO SCHOOL -- NO SHOPPING
JUST HIT THE STREETS
