Heels to Heal: Walk to honor Alan Blueford's Life 5/3 

When: Sat., May 3 2014
On Saturday May 3rd the Blueford family invites the community to join them in a walk around Lake Merritt to celebrate Alan Blueford's life which was cut short by an out of control OPD officer.

This walk is not a protest, it is a time for community unity as we celebrate & honor Alan's life. This walk is also a message to the Blueford's & to the community that Alan's life matters, all lives matter, including black & brown ones. We want to unite to send that message as we celebrate the life of one of Oakland's lost sons, and along with Alan, all of our children lost to violence.

In true Oakland celebratory fashion, this walk will be complete with a sound truck & rappers up on the truck....details are unfolding as I type....please stay tuned!! You can "like" The Alan Blueford Center For Justice on Facebook or check out the Justice 4 Alan Blueford website for details.
