In the aftermath of the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery, people in Milton stood in East Milton Square June 2 and took a stand against racism and violence.

Dr. Regine Jean-Charles, Chris Diorio, James Jette, Helene Norton-Russell, Karen Grobe-Horan and Debbie Alsabai spoke to about 300 people who gathered to show their concern.

A video created by Desmond Bradford, the newest member of the Milton Times staff, tells the story best. That video can be found on the multimedia portion of this website.

The group will stand out again June 4 at 6 p.m. on Blue Hills Parkway.
