The death of George Floyd, 46, an African-American man was killed while being detained by City of Minneapolis police officers on May 25, has sparked hundreds of protests around the country. Demonstrators are calling for an end to systemic racism, including alleged police tactics and practices targeting people of color.

In Sawyer County, a Black Lives Matter protest, sponsored by Up North Engaged, was held Saturday afternoon, June 6, at the intersection of highways 27 and 63 in the City of Hayward.
