A peace rally will be held in Victoria on Sunday in a show of solidarity for the Black Lives Matter movement.
Sparked by the death of George Floyd, massive protests have erupted throughout the U.S. recently. The Victoria peace rally will be held from 4 to 8 p.m. in Centennial Square.
“You don’t need to be an ‘activist’ to speak up for what matters. You don’t need to be a ‘protester’ to speak up for what matters,” reads the rally’s Facebook page. “To speak up, all you need is a voice and the will to be heard.”
Attendees are asked to wear white to show peace, bring signs, wear masks and try your best to social distance, along with bringing candles for a vigil to honor Floyd.
On Facebook, more than 1,500 people have said they will attend the event and another 3,000 have expressed interest.
