Locals, leaders gather for peaceful protest in South Lake Tahoe
RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - Another peaceful protest was held on Wednesday, July 29, 2020 in South Lake Tahoe to continue the conversation surrounding racism in the community and the nation.
A few dozen residents and local leaders attended the gathering held at Lakeview Commons located at 1004 Lakeview Ave.
South Lake Tahoe Black Lives Matter organizers and activists say the key to change is through care and consistency, not violence and hate.
“Here in South Lake Tahoe, we protest with love, we protest with education, with knowledge and change and with the right people,” Kevin Brunner, Organizer and activist said, “We have haters, counter protesters we have people with different views, it’s okay have your views.”
The South Lake Tahoe Black Lives Matters group said it is collaborating with local artists to paint the words “Black Lives Matter’ somewhere in the town. When that project will start and where is still to be determined.
