Friends of Justice is based in the great states of Texas and Louisiana, but we know that not everyone is lucky enough to live in our part of the country. 😉 If you live far away, but you still want to get involved in a Jena 6 protest, take heart! We’ve been getting word from other activists across the country who are organizing protests in their own cities. If you are organizing a protest about the Jena 6, please post a comment about it. We’ll post it to the blog, so it will go out to our subscribers as an Action Update. (If you’ve already posted an upcoming protest and I neglected to post it to the blog, my apologies: send us another comment and I’ll get it out there.)
The first of these protests will be in Boston in the next couple of weeks, pending a permit. If you live around Boston and you want to help organize this protest, please get in touch with Gretchen Segars at <email@example.com> This protest is currently looking for an established sponsoring organization who can send out a press release to get Boston-area media involved in the Jena story. Also, if you attend a Boston-area church that might want to send people, please consider putting together a church-based group or putting them in touch with Gretchen.
