Planet Princeton is reporting that more peaceful protests, rallies, and vigils are planned for the area over the weekend to ban together to end racism, police brutality, and to promote equality among all people.
There are three events planned for tomorrow (Saturday, June 6th). The first is a protest in Flemington. It's scheduled for 12pm, starting at the Flemington Justice Building and going to the Flemington Courthouse. The next one is in Princeton.
