Revelstoke teen Aza Deschamps is calling on the community to join the global Black Lives Matter protests.
On Thursday, June 4, at noon, a protest will be held at Centennial Park.
“It is a peaceful protest, I do not want any violence,” Deschamps said.
Though originally planned to be in front of city hall, Deschamps said she has changed locations due to the pandemic.
She is asking that those attending wear masks and that if you are unable or uncomfortable attending to make signs and put them up at your home.
The global protests began last week after George Floyd died while in police custody.
