June 22, 2015 (San Diego's East County)--Summit Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will be holding a Standing on the Side of Love event to support the national "Black Lives Matter" movement in Lemon Grove, California on June 22nd from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m..
The movement is a rallying cry against police actions and a criminal justice system which results in extremely disproportionate acts of violence, incrimination and incarceration of Blacks in America. This event will also advocate that local law enforcement agencies such as the San Diego Sheriffs' Department stop conducting actions like Operation Lemon Drop which appear to target low income populations of color.
The rally will start at the northwest corner of Lemon Grove Avenue and Broadway. At 5:30, local speakers will make short presentations regarding this movement in our region.
This is the second rally in East county sponsored by Summit Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in support of "Black Lives Matter." Based in Santee, one of the slogans for this religious group is:
People of Open Minds,
and Helping Hands
