LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) — Monday marked the tenth day in a row of protests in Lynchburg against police brutality and racial injustice.
That morning, the Hill City’s youngest citizens had their voices heard.
Parents and caregivers took part in a stroller march through the Boonsboro neighborhood, holding signs as passing cars honked in support.
“Us as a group, our main goal for this was to get parents talking and how us as parents can be educating our children,” said Nicole Lesane, an organizer of the stroller march.
Lesane said the key is teaching young children at an early age the value of inclusivity, and that it’s okay to see skin color, but it’s not okay to judge or discriminate.
