Marching on for Black Lives Matter

A crowd supporting the Black Lives Matter movement eventually swelled to about 400, as they marched from Carrie Blake Community Park through Sequim’s streets to decry racism, bigotry and discrimination Friday. The march mirrored dozens of similar demonstrations across Washington state.

A group of about 45-50 protesters braved the spring rains and marched along Beaver Valley Road through Chimacum as part of a statewide day of action silent march in support of the Black Lives Matter Movement. Organizer Jane Rioseco stated that the approximately five-mile march looped through Chimacum and Port Hadlock is part of a grassroots effort to honor and recognize victims of police violence, institutional racism and oppression.
