ABOUT

WE WILL BE HEARD 2020

The WWBH event is a fundraising and educational response to the murder of Black people in the U.S inside Secondlife. This week-long event to be held on July 4-11, 2020,  will include Poetry Slam, Panel Discussions, Activist Artwork, Photography Exhibits, Music and Dance Tributes, Movie screenings, and merchandise created to support the cause. The dates of the event intentionally fall on the U.S. Day of Independence and encompass July 7, the National Blackout Day for economic demonstration. The purpose is to raise awareness about what contributes to violence against Black people.

Violence is not only a physical manifestation of uprising, but it is also a recognition of the effects of over-policing, systemic racism, lack of access to healthcare, and other issues faced by communities of color. WWBH will be placing voting kiosks at the event so that people that the option to vote where they would like the proceeds to go. Among some of the organizations for consideration are, The Minnesota Freedom Foundation and Nationa Bail Fund Network, bail for the protester, Campaign Zero for solutions to End Police Violence and Know Your Rights Camp, education for Black Youth and Legal Defense Fund.
