CUERO – Educator Susan Hill decided her town needed its own protest when she heard students at her school discussing the Black Lives Matter demonstrations organized across the country in the wake of George Floyd’s death while in custody of the Minneapolis police.

“They asked me why nothing’s going on here and said, ‘It makes us feel like nobody loves us and nobody cares about us,’” said Hill, a paraprofessional educator at Hunt Elementary in Cuero.
