Please join us this Sunday, March 21st at 3:30 p.m. to take action to Protect Black Children

On Jan. 14, 2020, a five-year-old African-American kindergarten student walked away from East Silver Spring Elementary School. School employees contacted the Montgomery County Police Department to help find the boy. What happened after that call is inexcusable. Right here in our own county a five-year old child was accosted and verbally abused by law enforcement when what he needed was safe passage back to school. The abusive treatment continued in the presence of school staff when the officers brought the child back to school. At school, they continued to threaten him and even handcuffed him. This incident was covered up for more than a year before making the news. We will gather this Sunday, March 21st at East Silver Spring Elementary School and then march together to the Silver Spring Civic Center to send a strong message to County officials that we must protect Black children.

Please join us on Sunday. Come as a family. Come to learn. Come to be in community as we stand together to demand justice and to send a message to this child and his family that we care and that we are committed to doing better as a county and as a community.
