Freedom March NYC a youth-led civil rights organization (created by Chelsea Miller and Nialah Edari above) will hold a 7:00 PM vigil tonight for Black women at the Brooklyn Museum.

The vigil for Black women will be held in collaboration with: Justice for Black Girls; Black Women’s March; NAN Youth Huddle; Until Freedom; Girl Vow; Black Chef Movement; Fuel the People; and more.

Freedom March NYC was founded by two Black Columbia University alumnae: Chelsea Miller, 23, and Nialah Edari, 25.

The women came together on the 99th anniversary of the destruction of Black Wall Street. They then launched a policy platform called Five to Freedom 2020. They are calling for, among other things: refunding education, creating a youth public advocate, tackling police misconduct, and ending qualified immunity.
