A small, but passionate group of demonstrators gathered at the Minden Civic Center Sunday the 7th to protest racism in the police departments following the killing of George Floyd by a police officer.

Protesters were offered time to come and say what they needed to say about their feelings on the issue in front of the group. Some of the ones that came to speak were an Iraq war veteran, Mayor Terry Gardener, and Miss Minden 2020 Joy Davis joined to speak and sing "Amazing Grace".
