Monday's peaceful protest as a response to the killing of George Floyd was a rally in support of justice and against systemic racism that drew nearly 100 people from around the area.
"I challenge us. I challenge white and black people to step out of our comfort zones to have those uncomfortable conversations, to go to those town meetings, to talk to people that are in power," said Chantel Williams, a 22-year-old Bridgeport resident. "To start our own table. We don't need a seat at the table, we can start our own."
The protest, which came together through a social media post and included a march from the Westport Library to Whole Foods on Post Road West, followed one on Sunday. It ended at the Westport Police Department where several members of the crowd spoke, including Police Captain Foti Koskinas.
"I stand with you on all of these issues and I stand with you on the fact that we can't just meet once," Koskinas said. "This is a much bigger issue."
