The Plainfield Anti-Violence Coalition called for a local rally against the murder of George Floyd and police violence in general, and it took place today.
While this was Plainfield’s biggest anti-violence rally, it was preceded by many others over this past decade. I have made sure to participate – and post about – every single of one of them since December of 2013. Before giving you today’s photos, I wanted to commemorate all of the residents who have taken to the streets against violence in our community – even when few cameras and politicians were there.
