Move For Change: BLM 5K is a walk / run in honor of the black and brunette community
Viral and vegan hip hop artist Gray is teaming up with BLM 5K to host Atlanta’s BLM 5K Festival and the Move for Change campaign from November 18-20. BLM 5K challenges the community of Atlanta to give up and take action for change by running in a 5K and participating in festivities that will benefit the local community.
“For black lives to really matter, we have to stop killing each other,” says Tanisha Crisp, founder of BLM 5K.
As crime rates rise, BLM 5K has launched a Move for Change campaign to combat and advocate against gun violence and police brutality, challenging individuals to
lay down their weapons. The Move for Change campaign will influence unity, solidarity among black and brown individuals and allies.
BLM 5K has also partnered with non-profit organization Core Response to offer free vaccines during their 3-day Atlanta festival to help the black community get vaccinated. BLM 5K hopes to help educate the black community about the COVID-19 vaccine and offer it to those who wish to be vaccinated.
The family event invites everyone to attend, regardless of age, gender, race or origin. The BLM 5K Atlanta Festival aims to bring the community together. The event
will feature live music from over 20 artists, over 50 vendors, a diverse selection of food trucks, community fundraisers and giveaways. Participants can register for the event on BLM5K.com and donate to charitable partners Pinky Cole Foundation and Jordan Davis Foundation on the race website.
