The Saginaw branch of the NAACP is hosting a community challenge rally Thursday, June 4 in response to the death of George Floyd.
Floyd’s death at the hands of Minneapolis police have sparked protests nationwide, often resulting in violence and riots. The NAACP is issuing a challenge to Saginaw community leaders, clergy, educators, private sector representatives and more to make a concerted effort to eliminate racial discrimination. The rally will also focus on steps to take once the protesting is over.
The event will take place at 4:00 p.m. at the front entrance to Saginaw City Hall at 1315 S. Washington Ave.
