Peaceful protest held in Carrollton

Protesters march with signs in front of the Carrollton Municipal Court. The protest was in solidarity with other Black Lives Matter protests across the nation, but there are many other ways to support the BLM movement. “Try to research as much as you can,” senior Jacquelyn Burrer said. “Read as many things as you can to learn about the reforms that need to happen. Obviously, not everyone will want the same level of reform, but there is a common goal in the movement: that something needs to change. As long as people are getting involved and continue to speak out about what is important, we can prioritize changing the system.”
