June 6 - Peaceful Protest Honoring Black Lives Lost

Post Date:06/04/2020 10:40 am

On Saturday, June 6, from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m., students from Shorewood and Shorecrest High Schools’ Black Student Unions and members of Black Lives Matter Shoreline, along with other community groups, will hold a peaceful gathering at Cromwell Park to honor George Floyd, Tony McDade, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and all the other Black lives lost through racial injustice.

The event will begin at 12:00 p.m. at Cromwell Park with speeches and student performances. Participants will then march to City Hall. They will return to Cromwell Park for the closing program.

The City of Shoreline and Shoreline Police have been working with the event organizers to ensure the safety of the participants as they march to City Hall. We anticipate moderate traffic impacts between 12:30 and 1:30 as participants march to City Hall. We encourage drivers to take alternate routes through the area during this time. Traffic Plan

There will also be a car parade for people who do not wish to participate in the march. It will leave at the same time as the march but will take an alternate route to City Hall.

Organizers are encouraging everyone to wear face coverings and to honor social distancing.
