Worldwide Rollout Day is an initiative founded by the Atlanta-based roller skater and teacher @skatefantacee. The idea is to bring anyone and everyone on wheels together — skateboarders, roller skaters, Rollerbladers, cyclists, people on scooters, people in wheelchairs, humans on a rented Bird — to "build community cooperation and roll to erase hate."

Locally, the Cincinnati Rollergirls are spearheading an event at Wasson Way in Oakley. (Here's a map.) It starts at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, July 11 and you can roll back and forth over the .6-mile stretch however many times you want. 

"You are encouraged to bring antiracism signs and sign the existing 'Antiracism Now and 4Ever; banner that hangs on the trail near the I-71 overpass. Use the hashtags #WorldwideRolloutDay and #RollToEraseHate with any photos you take and please tag CRG too!," says the event description. 

Also, obviously, bring a mask in case social distancing is difficult.
