Peaceful protest in Miami honors George Floyd

MIAMI, Okla. – Protests picked up in Miami, Oklahoma, both Friday and Saturday.

As the protest stretched on into the evening on Friday, people lit candles in remembrance of George Floyd.

The protest remained peaceful, and one person who helped organize the event felt she was truly making a difference by standing up for what she believes in.

“A black man and his two kids came up and he said I wanna pray with you guys and he said it really warms my heart, that really touched me,” said Kara Nowlin, one Miami protester.
