Healthy Alternative 2 Birth of a Nation

The Ruiz Family Support Center will be offering a healthier alternative to the showing of a Birth of A Nation at the Capitol Therater. The Capitol will be showing this movie April 17 and I will be there demonstrating a peaceful protest. The movie is being shown irrisposibly & ignorantly. The "educational discussion" doesn't happen until 10 pm and I am quite sure most people will not stay. So, as an alternative, The Ruiz Family Support Center, located at 303 W. Liberty St in Rome, NY will be opening their door to people who want to discuss the movie, racisim, evolvment of racisim in the world and our community, and what we as citizens & individuals can do to make our community a better place. Please join us! I will start my protest at 6 pm in front of the Capitol.

Well, "IceMan" My children are following in the footsteps of their grandparents - which, in fact, I am very proud of. I too, have rallied for years.Got your facts wrong-my grandchild was NOT out in the cold - what a joke!!!I doubt that you were there

I'm pretty sure my daughter was just fine outside. She's well taken care of, probably better than most in this city. The cameras of this city have only shown a glimps of what I was speaking about, and soon you will see the entire conversation on here

iwas there last night, i saw your "protesting" your unprofessional demeanor including having your young child outside for HOURS in the cold is an embarrassment to ANYTHING you have to say, the only people who listened to you were the ones you brought
