“Dear PoPville,

Wondering if you or your readers have insight as to where I might pick up a BLM yard sign today. I was unsuccessful at the google. Heading out of town tomorrow morning and would love to bring the sign to my destination.”

Also another reader passes on “A Call to Action: Showing Solidarity with the Global Response against Racial Injustice

In response to the murder of George Floyd on May 25, millions of people around the country plan to commemorate JUNETEENTH (JUNE 19) to show solidarity and support to the African American community.

In agencies across the federal government, employees are exposing the disconnect between the agency’s stated commitment to diversity and inclusion and the daily employee experience. In solidarity with these employees, we must stand up for ourselves and for each other by building a workforce that reflects our nation’s diversity and leverages the creativity of diverse, talented groups to advance America’s foreign policy priorities.

If you plan to take leave on Juneteenth and want to be in solidarity, please consider including the below message as your out of office message: Read More

Thanks to BJ for sending:

The 2020 DC Juneteenth Front Yard Festival for Justice!

What: DC-wide Juneteenth Celebration – Memorial for George Floyd – Community Cookout (separate but together)
Where: YOUR own front yard/porch/balcony/Sidewalk etc
When: Friday, June 19th from 6-10pm

It’s a little tricky to explain, but basically we want EVERYONE to celebrate Juneteenth, but because of COVID, we want people to celebrate from their own Front Porches/Yards/Balconies/Sidewalks. Thinking of it as an event that is Together-Apart.

I know that our block (Illinois/Taylor and the surrounding ones) are keen to all cookout in our front yards and walk around on the sidewalks and visit etc.. but we have a lot of elderly and immuno-compromised folks in our area and a block party with everyone mixing together would be unsafe.
