Protesters are planning to gather in Dunn Meadow Friday at 3 p.m. to protest peacefully against police brutality.

A statement sent to the Bloomingtonian reads, “In light of recent events in regards to the killing of Black men by police officers, the community of Bloomington has decided to take a stand for our brothers and sisters. George Floyd, a 46-year-old African-American man, died on May 25, 2020 after being handcuffed and pinned to the ground by a police officer’s knee. On May 6, 2020, Sean Reed, was live-streaming himself on Facebook when he was shot. Unknown to the police, Reed was recording as he was gunned down and the officers had no clue that after shooting him, they could be heard sharing a laugh over his dead body. On February 23, 2020 Ahmaud Arbery, a black man, was jogging in his neighborhood in Georgia on February 23 when he was killed in a shooting after being chased by Gregory and Travis McMichael, a father and son former police officers…”
