Swedesboro Solidarity March with Police Support
Hello. My name is Christa Marsh and I am a resident of the Swedesboro/ Woolwich Twp in NJ. I am sure that you all have been seeing our current social and political climate and I would like to ask for your support to encourage the Swedesboro Woolwich community, officials and police department to aid in spreading awareness of injustices affecting African-Americans and to stand for the protection of civil rights of all Americans in our society. I am coming in solidarity to imitate other New Jersey cities like Camden, Newark and West Deptford where they effectively represented standing together (police and citizens) against injustice. The support of the police and township would restore trust of police and spread unity within our community. I am calling for a peaceful march in downtown Swedesboro where we can express injustice and remember those lives lost from it. We would like to keep it peaceful and safe for our community, businesses and all participants. We cannot do that efficiently without the police. We plan to reach out to the Swedesboro businesses to ensure our intentions and allow them to support and prepare any way they see fit. In all this, we will be honoring the pandemic and we can wear mask, gloves and social distance to the best of our ability. I want to start action in our own community to point towards demonstrations of peace and do not condone or tolerate violence in these efforts. We can make this an example to many other cities and towns in New Jersey and across the country! I am calling all Swedesboro Woolwich citizens in agreement with solidarity against injustice to please sign this petition so that I can show the Swedesboro Woolwich Officials and Police Department our unity and call to action! Thank you!
