This afternoon may come with a chance of rain, but there’s still plenty going on. Well into our third week of protests in NYC, people are continuing to show up and speak out against police brutality in the name of Black Lives Matter, here’s what’s happening today. And, as always, if you can’t attend any demonstrations be sure to check out our guide on how to support the movement, or consider bringing your business to these black-owned restaurants in the neighborhood.
