A Brentwood demonstration for racial justice organized by local students and the Williamson County Young Democrats will take place Friday.
This event was originally scheduled for last week, but after the death of Brentwood Police officer Destin Legieza, Brentwood resident Jackson McNabb, an organizer of the event and former Brentwood High School student, shared the postponement on social media.
"Because of the tragic events this morning regarding the BPD, it is most appropriate to postpone the planned demonstration today until next week," he wrote last week.
This demonstration, while not organized by an official chapter of Black Lives Matter, was named after the organization and described as "a peaceful, socially distanced demonstration to support black lives and oppose systemic racism in our community."
The event will take place on Friday, June 26, at 5 p.m. at the Franklin Road and Brentwood Place intersection near Chick-fil-A.
