Join us tomorrow, July 2 at 6 pm CDT as we come together for one cause... to END racism. Tune in as we celebrate together and hear from community leaders and speakers. The rally will be streamed online so visit the link in bio & RSVP to gain access. See you there! https://t.co/RaUSwnsfdD
The NAACP, League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) and Urban League of Texas will co-host the rally.
An event description on the LULAC's Facebook page for the event reads as follows:
"The discussion will focus on key issues including assessing the impact of COVID-19 across states with significant Latino and minority populations, new legislation including the HEROES Act, and overcoming barriers to voting during this health and economic crisis."
Guests will include Smith, Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson, reigning Olympic gold-medalist shot-putter Michelle Carter and Dallas Mavericks owner and CEO Mark Cuban.
Smith is taking part in his second virtual rally in as many weeks, as he participated in the Juneteenth Virtual Unity Rally Against Racism as well.
