Springfield Protests the Killing of George Floyd

The death of George Floyd while in police custody in Minneapolis on May 25th has sparked national outrage. Across the U.S., people took to the streets calling for justice for Floyd—including right here in western New England. 

On Wednesday night, nearly 4,000 flooded the streets of Springfield. The peaceful protesters marched from Central High School to the Springfield Police station on Pearl Street. Connecting Point’s Carolee McGrath and Dave Fraser were at the protest and share what happened on the ground.
