Hundreds of Victorians braved scorching heat Sunday to voice their support for the Black Lives Matter Movement in an event unlike anything Victorians said they’ve seen in the Crossroads.

“We wanted a peaceful protest that would really bring awareness in our community,” said protest co-organizer Jodi Sandoval, who works for the Victoria County Public Health Department. “But we know that this is just the beginning, to begin to sit at the table with our law enforcement and our city officials.”
