Protesters at a rally against racism and injustice — estimated by some to be at least 300 — took to the streets of Port Townsend Friday, June 5.

The demonstration, one of the largest ever seen in Port Townsend, was held in response to the police shooting of George Floyd in Minnesota May 25.

Rosemary Crecca, a 15-year-old ninth-grader at Port Townsend High School, organized the gathering on social media. She said she put the call out on Instagram: "Does anyone want to be in a group chat? We can plan a protest in Port Townsend."

The demonstration began at Mountain View Commons, with the reading of names during a “die-in” of 8 minutes and 46 seconds, the time it took George Floyd to be murdered by police in Minnesota.
