Future Fest: 25 Years after Rodney King
About the March:
FutureFest (http://southlaisthefuture.com/) will commence with a march at 11am from Florence & Normandie and will end at a vacant lot on 82nd and Vermont. The UMMA group will be mostly wearing UMMA shirts. You’re welcome to join us! Just look for a large group with the UMMA banner between 10:45am-11am!
Meeting place: Florence & Normandie (in front of Tom’s Liquor, the place where the riots started)
Meeting time: 10:45am
What to wear: It is going to be sunny and warm out with a gentle breeze (high temperature is 87!), so keep the weather in mind! Wear comfortable shows for lots of walking, and if you have any UMMA shirts, wear them!
What to bring: Water, sunblock, a hat, sunglasses if you wear them, comfortable shoes, a snack (since we’ll be active), and your energy! What are you marching for? Make/bring a sign!
