Participants in the Oakville Black Lives Matter drive decorated their vehicles with posters and car paint to show their support.

There will be an anti-racism Black Lives Matter walk at Mehlville High School this Sunday.

The walk, organized by a group of Mehlville School District teachers, will take place from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. Sunday, June 28, at Mehlville High School, 3200 Lemay Ferry Road.

The family friendly walk will start and end on the MHS campus. The walk will begin outside the main office by the auditorium.

“The purpose of this walk is to show our students and community that we see, hear, and support those who have experienced acts of racism and hate,” teacher Cheryl Ogolin said about the event. 

Attendees are asked to wear a mask and social distance.

There will be no bathroom access since the school is closed.

A 2020 graduate of Oakville High School, which is also in the Mehlville School District, organized a Black Lives Matter drive last week.
