Human Billboard: Solidarity with the Movement for Black Lives

Join SURJ Bay Area under the awning of the Grand Lake Theater of Lakeshore and MacArthur Blvd. in Oakland, rain or shine, to call attention to injustice and demonstrate solidarity.

Throughout the East Bay and nationally, folks have been holding weekly gatherings on prominent street corners and freeway overpasses, holding signs and making visible our support for Black communities in these critical times. These gatherings - or "human billboards" - have been a simple yet effective way of channeling anger and sadness over injustice into collective action and solidarity.

Bring a sign with the following messaging:

Will you stand against racism?
Will you stand against Islamophobia?
Solidarity with the Undocumented Community
Solidarity with Q.T.P.O.C. 
We Support Our Muslim Neighbors
Black Lives Matter
No Deportations! No Walls!
