The Black Lives Matter Vigil continues every Friday, rain or shine. North Woodside and Woodside neighbors stood there on Christmas Day 2020 and New Year’s Day 2021 (during a cold downpour). And nearly 30 people, a vigil record, showed up on the Friday after the attack on the U.S. Capitol and racist vandalism marked cars in Woodside. The following week the most enthusiastic honker was a woman who works in the White House, just down the road.
For those who attend weekly, the event has provided a meaningful way to meet neighbors and match masked faces with names from the listserv. All are welcome!
Update (October 2021): The Black Lives Matter Vigil has concluded and may resume at a later date. For more information, contact the organizer.
