WHAT: A Celebration of Life Dance Party

Where: 14th & Broadway, Oscar Grant Plaza

When: Today: Saturday, March 14th, 2-5 pm

Why: There have been a series of tragic deaths in the town, most recently Chemile Pierce; a 30-year old mother who was killed as she tried to shield her children from gunfire. Local artist Jennifer Johns and activist Cat Brooks are calling on the community to come together to not just honor our dead, but to celebrate our life. We are going to dance away our pain, build community and reaffirm our commitment to living LIFE in the town. A line up of 7 Bay Area DJs will keep people dancing from 2-5 pm. Local food vendors are invited to join us! And if people want to help, we need water, tables, chairs. This is a grassroots, community response!!!
