An event in support of ending racial inequality is planned for June 4 beginning at 5 p.m. in the Public Square in downtown Franklin.

The End White Silence Action is being organized by a Franklin resident and is intended to be a peaceful call to action.

According to the event description, participants will hold signs reading, "End White Silence," and "Black Lives Matter."
