(ALBANY, NEW YORK) – The New York State United Teachers (NYSUT)-sponsored Together We Rise: A Virtual Vigil for Justice, Action and Peace is scheduled to take place on Monday (June 8th) between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.
NYSUT is asking Unions, their Members and the general public to join the Statewide Teachers Union for a virtual vigil that will call for an end to racial and economic inequities and honor the life of George Floyd and other lives senselessly ended.
NYSUT is working to bringing communities across the state together to grieve, declare Black Lives Matter and offer national, state and locally-driven actions to make a difference.
The event will feature National and New York State and Union Leaders, as well as NYSUT Members.
In between speakers, there will be performances by students and NYSUT Members.
