The event was held in front of McAdam's pool to show how systemic racism has been operating  at the city level with the future closing of the neighborhood pool. 

The group then marched into neighborhoods registering and engaging voters, as well as sharing the history of the McAdams neighborhood area.

Stand Up, Speak Out! represents the systemic issues and the fusion of all colors, creeds, identities and cultures of the movement.
