We are a group of Bandon area residents who came together in support of and along with Americans and people around the world who wish to feel safe and secure in their communities.

Quotes from Some of our Members

"Our street demonstration is about American justice and fairness, and everyone's right to have them." -WF

"I sincerely believe in the ideals of Compassion, Love, and Equality. My connection with B.I.G helps me share these ideals with others in our community. We are all in this together!" -Amy W.

"It is not often in life that we have moments of clarity that cause us to consider our own lives in deep and meaningful ways resulting in us reaching out to others around us to share our humanity with." -Dwight

"I wanted to do something after being so affected by the death of George Floyd. I saw the article about the demonstrations in the newspaper and hopped in my car with my sign and found the group and found myself at peace and at home with my group." -JK

"By demonstrating on the corner, we helped other Bandonites to know that racism cannot prevail here." -Micky

"Being part of this group reduced the isolation and helplessness I felt as I watched the national news. I believe in "thinking global, and acting local" -MF

"My biggest take away from months of demonstration for racial and social justice has been: Never underestimate your potential for creating the world you wish to live in" -GM

"For me it was watching the video of George Floyd. I can’t explain it but it was like something clicked in my head. I knew that I could no longer sit and watch what was happening -- I had to stand up in support." -RB
