Santa Maria, June 4, 2020. George Floyd Memorial and Solidarity Rally was a peaceful but somber rally held Thursday in Santa Maria. A day of anger and sorrow for Black lives lost to police brutality was first and foremost in focus. There was recognition and condemnation by speakers of systemic racism that has allowed minority injustices. There was also high energy among the protesters that comes with persistence of purpose to demand change. They stressed the importance of holding leaders accountable, and to meet the challenge in our personal lives to recognize and confront racism.
