UNAC/UHCP Shows Our Solidarity for Justice and Equality
We take a knee to pray, to propose marriage, to pause in reflection, to embrace a small child, to pay respect, to grieve, to humble ourselves.
We can follow the example of those all over the country, from peaceful protesters to celebrities to figures in law enforcement, who are taking a knee. This reverent and loving gesture was elevated in recent years by former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick and other athletes in an effort to put police brutality in the national spotlight.
On Friday, June 12, 2020, we hosted a Facebook Live Event featuring our members kneeling or some other posture of reflection and respect. Let’s continue to move our nation and our world closer to justice, equality, humanity.
How to join:
- Watch: A special broadcast on UNAC/UHCP Facebook Live (https://www.facebook.com/unacuhcp) recognizing victims of police brutality and violence, showing members of our UNAC/UHCP family taking a knee in solidarity, and offering resources.
