“I think it will for sure. It was very powerful and you’ve got multi-racial people who are participating and the need is so great.”

“I think it has the potential. Many times, as we’ve seen in the past, you get an uproar in the community, then [it] eventually it dies down and goes back to normal.”

Joshua Taylor

Inglewood

“I think so because the protests have been going on for a while. Lots of different people from all over the country have joined in the marches. It’s more powerful now and I think things are going to change.”

“I hope so.  We’ve been here before, but now it seems more like a worldwide movement. We just can’t keep rinse and repeat till the next time.”
