LEWISBURG – The HUB for Progress, based in Lewisburg, released information for a virtual vigil in honor of victims of police brutality and racial profiling, in collaboration with the emerging Lycoming Tri-County NAACP. Locally, the group is focusing on a vigil-in-place this evening from 8:50 to 9:30 p.m. as an opportunity to stand in solidarity with black lives.
In addition, there will be online programming all day today, starting with a noon Kneel and Remember Rally centered in Philadelphia, but able to be joined remotely.
To join the evening Vigil-in-Place, the group says you can either conduct your own vigil offline, observe online, or participate through Zoom.
A memorial is also being planned in Selinsgrove in honor of George Floyd, the man killed during police action in Minnesota. A solidarity candlelight walk will take place this evening at 9 p.m. and will leave from Sharon Lutheran Church on Market Street.

If you do not want to be directly part of the Zoom gallery of candlelight, the Zoom will also be streamed through facebook (https://bit.ly/TheHUB4Progress) and youtube (https://bit.ly/VigilInPlaceYoutTube) with links available through The HUB for Progress.
