#GlobalShutDown--Die-In on Mass St.
Wed, Dec 10, 2014 4pm
U.S. Bank - 900 Massachusetts St Lawrence, KS
Dec 9, 2014

Come die-in in conjunction with the #GlobalShutDown. The #Lawrencediein will happen in the courtyard and sidewalk of U.S Bank on Massachusetts Street. Be there at 4p. We will die-in for approximately 4 minutes (the time it took Tamir Rice to get help after being shot by police).

For more information on the case of Tamir Rice visit-

Black people are 21 times more likely to be killed by law enforcement than White people. Native people, Trans people, people with disabilities and homeless people are also at high risk of violence at the hands of the police. Let's stand in solidarity today and always that #thisendsnow.
