If not intending to participate in the protest, Lewisville police are recommending residents find an alternate route to their destination between the hours of 6-8 p.m.
“We commend residents for exercising their right to voice their concerns, and we share their desire for justice and equality,” the department announced on social media. “[Residents] should consider taking an alternate route today to avoid possible traffic delays.”
The protest is expected to be related to a wave of protests nationwide in support of George Floyd, a black man who died May 25 in police custody in Minneapolis.
