South Windsor for BLM started this petition to The Mayor

On June 12th, 2020, a group of young former and current students of South Windsor schools spent close to 3 hours painting "Black Lives Matter" in front of the Town Hall. It was powerful and important for a small suburban town to be involved in a national movement. Prior to doing this, we had permission from the Mayor, and he was able to support us throughout the entire process. 

Unfortunately, many residents have expressed that they are vehemently against this movement, and therefore are racist. They are very upset that the Town Hall has been "defaced" and claiming that all lives matter. They are blaming our Mayor for speaking for the town (which is his responsibility), and they believe that the paint should be removed. Town Hall, for reference, is not in a residential area and has recently been closed due to COVID. Residents have only recently been coming to the building in order to obtain dog licenses. 

We will clearly have to prove to our residents and surrounding towns that South Windsor does not stand for the racism that exists in our community. Please consider signing this petition, as we want our paint to exist on this property for as long as possible.

We also have a Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/swforblm/ and Instagram @sw.for.blm.
