We will meet at 13th and Summer Streets in Eureka, a block from Food For People at 1:00pm. Then, we will march and speak out, talking with people on the way about the police violence that stole Martin's life and continues against houseless people every day.

At 4:30pm on Cotton Day, please join us at the foot of F street on the Humboldt Bay to share dinner and to Remember Martin in a Peaceful Setting. When dark comes, we will have a candlelight vigil..

Cotton Day starts at 1:00 pm on the corner of 13th and Summer, less than two blocks from DMV and Food For People.

We will begin marching by 2pm and gather at the waterfront by 4:30pm.
