On Saturday, June 6, hundreds of protestors joined members of LAPD’s Harbor Division for a march of unity in the wake of the Black Lives Matter protests. The march, organized by L.A. City Councilman Joe Buscaino, the LAPD, and the local chapter of the NAACP saw protestors and uniformed officers, including LAPD Chief Michel Moore, march from the Harbor Division police station on Harbor Boulevard to Pepper Tree Plaza outside San Pedro’s City Hall. The diverse crowd of protestors held signs supporting Black Lives Matter and protesting police brutality in the wake of the deadly arrest of George Floyd in Minneapolis. The peaceful demonstration included many local families with their children. The LAPD handed out white roses to protestors as a sign of peace and unity within the community.
