's Annual #BlackoutBlackFriday
nationwide boycott and day of action "...to spark change and stand united against racial, economic and social injustices... On Friday November 23rd, the biggest retail shopping day of the year also known as #BlackFriday
, join Blackout for Human Rights as we kick off our fifth annual #BlackoutBlackFridaycampaign
, urging people nationwide to take part in an economic #boycott
of major retailers, and any corporations that violate human rights standards, and/or profit off the pain and suffering of others.
Launched in 2014, #BlackoutBlackFriday
is a call-to-action encouraging individuals to refrain from shopping to protest social and economic injustice in the U.S., and instead engage in #culturalactivism
. As an alternative, Blackout for Human Rights -- a collective founded by filmmaker #RyanCoogler
with members including #AvaDuVernay
, Charles King and others -- has organized FREE events in New York City and Oakland, California to #celebrate #arts
, and to build solidarity against extreme capitalism and human right atrocities happening across the country." In NYC, Blackout for Human Rights, in partnership with @filmlinc
, will host a special screening and conversation with #filmmaker
, and #musician
Terence Nance and filmmaker Michèle Stephenson of Rada Film Group.
