VIDEO: Black Lives Matter Speech by County Legislator Chris Johnson

BLM Speech Chris Johnson

About 1,000 of your neighbors participated in a Black Lives Matter protest and march on Saturday, June 13th.

The peaceful group gathered at Rye High School at 2pm and then marched to the village green for speeches from local officials and activists. The group then resumed its march, winding around Rye before ending back at the high school.

Here is the speech of Westchester County Legislator Chris Johnson (16th district and Majority Whip). “If you know there is something wrong in our society, what are you doing?,” Johnson asked the crowd. “Do more. Do more.”

We’ll be posting more photos and videos of the march and various speeches here on MyRye.com through Sunday and Monday, please check back.
