Protesters in Danville converged upon downtown areas on Monday, June 3, to demand justice following the death of George Floyd.

Protesters chanted as they marched from Main Street Plaza across bridge to River Street, signs in hand.

The protesters then created line across traffic, linking arms and participating in a moment of silence.

The protest, which began at 2 p.m. Monday, was organized by 18-year-old Dasia Swift, who said protests do not have to respond with violence to demand justice against all police brutality.

Swift said she would keep organizing to allow young people to speak up about these issues.
