Juneteenth Tribute


Friday, June 19, 2020


1:00pm - 1:30pm


Sidewalks surrounding MM


Please join us outside on Friday, June 19th at 1 pm.

Kneeling in silence begins at 1:15 pm on the sidewalks of East and West Medical Center Drive for 8 minutes and 46 seconds as a tribute to George Floyd and all of those who have lost their lives to racial injustice.

People inside the hospital please step outside to a sidewalk to surround our campus in solidarity. Those working from home please come and kneel with us.

Please wear a mask and arrive early to properly social distance.
