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 State Assemblyman Steve Otis (91st District). “Our moment in history is to take back what this country is all about and what we want it to be. It should live up to our dreams,” said Otis.
