Stand for Justice/Kneel for those who cannot

It’s quite remarkable, but according to a Morning Consult poll, the most “heard about” political story of 2018 was the #TakeAKnee protests, in which NFL players knelt during the national anthem to protest ongoing police brutality against people of color. No, not an actual political story, like the Democrats winning 40 seats to retake the U.S. House or the many guilty pleas of those working on Trump’s presidential campaign. And yet, here we are. Pittsburgh’s chapter of the Women’s March is hosting a Stand for Justice/Kneel for those who cannot event outside of the Steelers game. Protesters will gather outside at the corner of Art Rooney Avenue and North Shore Drive. The goal according to their Facebook page is to “reflect our concerns about police violence against African Americans and other people of color throughout the country.”
