As riots in Minneapolis continue, a center for low-income housing put out a call asking for food donations.

In Long Beach, California:

Today in Long Beach.

Yet another massive, peaceful protest.

I know violence gets more attention, but the majority of America looked like this today.

#protests2020

Crazy how the Long Beach protests didn’t get any media coverage until people started looting. Forget broadcasting these lovely photos of our city’s peaceful protest, but as soon as a store’s front window is broken, all of a sudden, Long Beach is all over Channel 7…

8.

In Washington, DC:

Thousands peacefully kneeling in DC remembering George Floyd chanting, “Stop Killing Black People.”

Why isn’t this video viral? Why is the media only interested in talking about isolated acts of vandalism & theft?

We’re here & We ain’t leaving.

In Bellevue, Washington:

I’m in Bellevue. Yes, there’s some looting but there are also peaceful protests. The Chief is on Komo 4 news saying George Floyd isn’t being mentioned and people are solely looting. That’s untrue.

In San Bernardino, California:

11.

In Boston:

y’all are telling me that boston wasn’t peaceful? this was the common before police showed up, show me where the violence is.

Protests in Boston were peaceful. Very light police presence, only saw a handful. We were able to loop around downtown on the streets and conduct a moment of silence in the park. #bostonprotest #protests2020

In Montreal:

The #MontrealProtest was totally peaceful the entire way through. All we did was march and chant. As soon as the sun went down the cops started firing rubber bullets and tear gas at the crowds. They don’t want peaceful protests, they want silence.

17.

Incredible scene at Colorado’s Capitol right now. Thousands of protesters are lying face down with their hands behind their backs chanting “I can’t breathe.” They’re doing this for 9 mins. #copolitics #denverprotest #GeorgeFloyd
