Sources sent us the following information on a planned protest this weekend in Rockford.

Saturday at 4 PM – 6 PM
450 N Church St, Rockford, IL 
Hosted by Rockford Youth Activism

The event posted the following on social media:

Please join us at Haskell park on May 30 at 4 PM as we remember the life of George Floyd and make our voice heard. For too long, the police in Rockford and across the country have been able to abuse our communities. We stand in solidarity with the uprising in Minneapolis, families of the those murdered by police and all people oppressed by the racist system. We would love for as many people as possible to come while also adhering to social distancing. You are allowed to bring poetry, writings or anything else you would like to share. We plan on marching as well. Also, be sure to wear masks and bring water. We hope to see alot of y’all there!!! ✊🏾✊🏾

If you are a cop supporter or sympathizer, this is not the rally/March for you to attend; you will be removed for such actions as they endanger the POC involved and the resistance against the racist system of policing. Black voices will be focused. White allies are encouraged to attend but also realize that this is a black centered event.
