Protesters March for Black Lives, Mamaroneck to Larchmont

 

Hundreds knelt in honor of George Floyd at Flint Park friday

 

A pounding rain storm didn’t stop a local peaceful Black Lives Matter protest Friday evening. Several hundred people marched from Harbor Island Park in Mamaroneck to Flint Park in Larchmont.

The event was organized by local High School students. At the end of the rally, participants knelt in silence for 8 ½ minutes in honor of  George Floyd, the Minneapolis man shown on video as a police officer put a knee on his  neck for more than 8 1/2 minutes — as he pleaded for air and his mother.

I’m very proud to be part of a community where our High Schoolers organize and march for Justice – and it’s great to see VoM Mayor Tom Murphy on the front lines as always!
