Millions March NYC

millionsmarch01

After weeks of demonstrations across New York City protesting the killing of black men by police officers, more than ten thousand protesters came together at Washington Square Park for the Millions March. Unlike previous protests, the march was heavily organized, with a large team of marshals directing the crowd and NYPD officers and barricades blocking side streets along the route. The march concluded at One Police Plaza with statements from family members of victims of police killings. Afterwards, groups of protestors split off, with many crossing the Brooklyn Bridge.
