Where to let your voice be heard.
As vigils, rallies, marches, and peaceful protests continue to swell across Westchester County, you may be looking for a place to safely exercise your right to public demonstration. Here are a few upcoming events you can join in on. Many of these were also posted to the local Facebook group Not in Our Towns Westchester, NY – Unite Against Hate, and are being updated as new/updated events and information comes in.
For the public health, Governor Cuomo is asking that anyone who attends any large civil gathering act as if they have been exposed and carefully distance/monitor themselves in the weeks after. Scheduling a COVID-19 or antibody test is also recommended.
Tuesday, June 30
Black Lives Matter March; Rye Brook at 1 p.m.
A one-hour march will begin from Crawford Park in Rye Brook, organized by local high schoolers. The event will include also fundraisers, petition stations, and speeches by community leaders like Nancy Barr, Joan Grangenois Thomas, and potentially even frontrunner to succeed Representative Nita Lowey, Mondaire Jones.
