Police and firefighters marched with protesters of all ages in Avondale Sunday morning. Protesters marched at 9:30 a.m. from the Avondale Town Center to district four headquarters. The march comes after the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, MN. Organizer and Youth Services Section Police Officer Eddie Hawkins from Avondale, says this is about the community, especially the youth, to come together with police and firefighters to march against officers’ misconduct and for the community to have the tough conversations with them. “Sometimes the perception is that it is us against them, the police against the community and a lot of individuals would like for everyone to think that way," Hawkins said. “I was just having a conversation with a co-worker of mine and he kept saying 'we got to make sure they stay here."
