We invite you to join a broad, inter-generational, and multiracial coalition of Cleveland residents in leading an evening of peaceful action to demand accountability and justice in the moments leading up to the first Presidential Debate in Cleveland, OH September 29th, 2020. The Cleveland Presidential Debate Protest for Black Lives and Climate Justice will be held at Wade Lagoon Park in University Circle from 5-8pm and will feature speakers, musicians, poets from our community sharing stories of the future we want to make and the struggles we share.
Please be prepared for rain, and be aware that due to targeted state action against peaceful assembly, this may not be a family friendly environment.
If you cannot make it out on this day, we invite you to take action virtually — follow and support our coalition partners on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media, and find out how you can get more involved:
Black Lives Matter Cleveland, Sunrise Movement CWRU Hub and Sunrise Movement Cleveland Hub, Resist Operation Relentless Pursuit-Operation Legend Cleveland, DSA Cleveland, Black Spring Cle, Safer Heights, the InterReligious Taskforce on Central America, Defend Black Women, The Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless, Communist Party USA, Jail Coalition Cuy County, New Voices for Reproductive Justice and others
