DENVILLE, NJ -- As Denville Township prepares for a solidarity march and rally tonight, June 8, at 6 p.m. in response to the death of George Floyd, Denville Mayor Thomas Andes urges demonstrators to do so peacefully.
"We have no room for hate or bias in Denville - and - We love and respect our Denville Police Officers," Andes stated in a community announcement issued Fri., June 5. "However, we also are not blind to the fact that racism still exists. For this reason, I am listening and will do what I can to be an agent for education and an agent for change. If you plan on exercising your Constitutional rights of Assembly and Speech on Monday, June 8th, please do so peacefully. This way, you can ensure that your voices are heard and all return home safely."
Demonstrators will gather on Bloomfield Avenue in the area of McCarter Park at 6 p.m., and the march will start at 6:15 p.m.
The rally will take place in the Upper Bloomfield Avenue Parking Lot and is expected to conclude no later than 8 p.m.
Denville Police reminds participants to wear face coverings in compliance with COVID-19 executive orders and maintain social distancing as much as possible.
