Protest Organized for Sunday Evening in Victoria
If you are planning to be in downtown Victoria on Sunday night make a mental note that there is a demonstration planned for 6 PM at the Dr. Pattie Dodson Public Health Center parking lot.
This will be a gathering for those who wish to support or stand in solidarity with the family of George Floyd. Floyd was the man who passed away in Minnesota after an encounter with police officers who have all been charged in relation to Floyd's death.
In Victoria, Lisa Ruiz has organized the event and created a Facebook page to spread the word. You can link to that event here.
The Victoria Advocate shared the event and explained Ruiz had told organizers “We want to take this as an opportunity to speak for police reform. A lot of people don’t see the level of micro-aggressions that happen daily.”
You will want to pay attention if you are out traveling through town on Sunday evening as the organizers plan on marching after they gather at the Dodson Public health Center. The group will walk from Dodson over to Detar Hospital on Navarro.
