On Saturday, June 13, 2020, at 4 p.m., 10K led another march through the streets of Minneapolis. Starting at U.S. Bank Stadium, about 1,500 marched past First Avenue to continue drawing attention to racial injustice and police brutality and to honor the memory of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and all those who have lost their lives at the hands of the police.
The diverse crowd marched along with security cars and bikes while chanting and singing. Despite the smaller crowd compared to previous marches, Saturday’s “Free North” March felt even more cohesive as everyone as able to hear the organizers and join in the calls for justice. At the end of the March, protesters celebrated together with food trucks, music, speakers, and fireworks.
10K is a nonprofit that formed within 2 weeks of the tragic murder of George Floyd and plans to continue in the fight to bring justice and awareness to racial injustices. Organizers say that while there may not always be marches, their hope is to continue the conversation as long as necessary.
On Saturday, June 20th, 10K Foundation will be launching our next initiative “10k Feeds 10K.” We will be donating hot meals and non-perishables to local homeless shelters and community organizations during the day, followed by a meet and greet with community leaders and 10K foundation at the Gym for productive conversations about what’s next for our community. 4 PM at TightenUp BodySculpting:
2908 Harriet Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55408.
