Did you go to work today? Maybe you did not hear the call by former “Grey’s Anatomy” star Isaiah Washington for African-Americans to boycott work today to protest against police brutality. With Black Americans making up about 12 percent (or 18,758,000) of the workforce that would be a lot of people not showing up to work.

Washington urged all African-Americans to boycott work, school, and shopping for a 24-hour period “to show the world that Black lives matter,” reported The Huffington Post.  Washington issued the call on his Facebook page on September 20th. According to Washington, he partnered with Madelon “Blue” McCullough from #Missing24,“a grassroots movement for our people by our people.”

Here’s what Washington posted:

After a lengthy and substantive discussion with Madelon “Blue” McCullough from #Missing24 , we have united our efforts regarding boycotting the very system that was built on the backs of black people here in America. Every African born in America is fed up, hurt, confused, saddened and angry about the continued extrajudicial killings by public servants in our streets, so collectively we bring forth a solution.
