In Solidarity: A Moment of Silence on Gordon Plaza

Gordon Plaza

This Thursday at noon, please join us virtually for an 8 minute, 46 second moment of silence to recognize, reflect and mourn the recent heartbreaking and senseless deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery. With this event, we hope to shine a light on the ongoing systemic racism, police brutality, and persistent inequality faced by Black and other oppressed communities in the United States. The event will begin at noon and the 8 minute and 46 second period of silence will begin at approximately 12:10 PM.
