Lafayette March for Police Accountability and Black Lives June 14th
Another peaceful protest is planned for Lafayette, this one taking place on June 14th, beginning at Maurice Heymann Park.
The March for Police Accountability and Black Lives will begin at 5pm on Sunday, June 14th at the park on the corner of Girard Park Drive and S. College, adjacent to the Heymann Center parking lot.
According to the Facebook post, the march is in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement:
The march will travel from Heymann Memorial Park to the pavilion at the east end of Girard Park, where they will hold a rally "featuring community organizations, speakers, and poets calling for an end to police brutality in our community".
The hosts of the event include the Student Action & Organizing Group, Move the Mindset, and the Lafayette Chapter of the Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG).
Participants are encouraged to bring signs, neighbors, and water and to wear comfortable clothing and shoes, and everyone must have a protective mask.
