Sunday peaceful demonstration: Nine Minutes at Nine

Eric Peterson of Adair County writes:

We would like to invite everyone in the Adair County community to join together with us on the Public Square in Columbia Sunday morning, June 7, 2020 at 9amCT in a peaceful demonstration against hatred, racism and violence.

We will share 9 minutes of silence to remember the 9 minutes George Floyd was held to the ground as he was murdered.

Please wear a mask. You can also show your unity with us from inside your vehicle; consider parking on the square and flashing your hazard lights for the nine minutes.
In honoring George Floyd, Kentucky's own Breonna Taylor, and the countless others who died under the oppression of racism, we stand in unity with our brothers and sisters of color. We will listen and hear their voices, and we will share in their cries for justice.

For questions or more information, contact me at 270-459-1241.
