Del Rio protest

Valerie Rodriguez-Davila instructs some of the protesters attending Tuesday night's protest at the Amistad Urban Oasis demanding justice after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Floyd died while in police custody and his death has sparked protests across every major city in the U.S.

Del Rioans peacefully protested against corruption and racial profiling on Tuesday afternoon, by respecting opposing views despite receiving some backlash from the community, an organizer of the protest said.

“There were things that were said,” Valerie Rodriguez-Davila, organizer of the protest, said.
