Taking time to remember, reflect and come together as a community is an important part of the healing process and critical to making a difference.

But our work is not done. For 8 actions you can take right now to continue to push for change, visit www.nysut.org/vigilaction. This link includes all of the actions reference in tonight's vigil.

About the Vigil

Join us for a virtual vigil on Monday, June 8, 4-6 p.m. to call for an end to racial and economic inequities and honor the life of George Floyd and other lives senselessly ended.

We are 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 state and national union leaders and NYSUT members. In between speakers, we will have performances by students and members.
