Six McLean High School students are planning a peaceful Black Lives Matter protest on Wednesday afternoon.
Sophie T. told Tysons Reporter that they want the protest to “show our support for the BLM movement and speak out against racial injustice and inequality.”
The protest is scheduled for Wednesday (June 10) from 3-5 p.m. and will start at McLean High School. After some speakers, the protesters will march down Chain Bridge Road around 3:50 p.m.
According to the flyer for the event, participants are encouraged to bring water and social distance. Masks will be required.
Sophie said that they are expecting a “decent turnout” and have invited local religious leaders to march and pray with the crowd.
