Viral, Vegan Hip Hop artist Grey partners with BLM 5K to host the BLM 5K Atlanta Festival and Move for Change Campaign from November 18-20. BLM 5K is challenging the Atlanta community to put their guns down and move for change by running in a 5K and participating in festivities that will benefit the local community.
“For black lives to truly matter, we have to stop killing each other,” says BLM 5K founder Tanisha Crisp.
As the crime rate increases, BLM 5K has launched a Move for Change campaign combating and advocating against gun violence and police brutality, challenging individuals to
put their guns down. The Move for Change campaign will influence unity, solidarity within black, brown individuals and allies.
BLM 5K has also partnered with Core Response non-profit organization 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 that wish to get vaccinated.
The family-friendly event welcomes everyone to attend regardless of age, gender, race, or background. The BLM 5K Atlanta Festival is about bringing the community together. The event
will feature live music from 20+ artists, 50+ vendors, a diverse selection of food trucks, community donation drives, and giveaways. Participants can register for the event at BLM5K.com and donate to charity partners Pinky Cole Foundation and Jordan Davis Foundation on the race website.
