An anti-racism rally is being held in Red Deer City Hall Park on Sunday at 4 p.m.
“Join us in a peaceful community discussion about bringing inclusivity, further steps into how you can combat racism, and listen to stories of personal experiences from local speakers and speakers from across Alberta,” the Facebook event page says.
A series of anti-racism protests were held in Red Deer and central Alberta earlier this summer.
The first Red Deer rally was June 1, when more than 130 central Albertans showed up at City Hall Park for a peaceful march against racism. Two more rallies were held in the city later that week – hundreds attended both demonstrations.
These rallies came following a number of anti-racism demonstrations in the United States and other Canadian cities, such as Calgary, Toronto and Montreal.
The demonstrations earlier this summer were triggered by the death of George Floyd, whose death beneath the knee of a Minneapolis police officer was captured on a cellphone video.
