Upcoming Bay Area Protests For Breonna and More
Despite the upcoming heat and hazy conditions predicted in the Bay Area this weekend, expect the people to come out and voice their opinions in protest. This week there have already been many protests across the nation against the Kentucky Verdict. Although many of these protests do not have the name Breonna in them yet, they certainly will by this weekend.
If you plan to attend protests, Know your rights as a protester, and remember to wear a mask.
