On January 10th, 2020 at 6pm activists, community leaders, artists and organizations will join together at the corner of William and Charles for a peaceful, interfaith candlelight vigil and rally to re-affirm, stand behind, honor, center, and listen to Black Voices in our community.

Our gathering is supported by National, Statewide and local community organizations:

Virginia Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival, Southerners On New Ground group aka Pride FXBG, ICE OUT of Virginia//Fuera de FXBG Fredericksburg Food Not Bombs and led by affected leaders in our community.
