This is the second black rights rally to happen in as many days, with a similar protest yesterday. That protest was focused on Dafonte Miller. This protest will have a broader focus, and includes support of the Afro-Indigenous Rising (AIR). AIR has been hosting a tent city occupation in front of City Hall.

It is not clear how many attendees this event will have.
This is a developing story, and I’ll provide more details as they arise.
