Shortly after the murder of George Floyd, Civil Rights Forum and PACG Board member Caryn Unsicker organized a rally to show support for the Black Lives Matter movement, a news release says. She gathered friends at one of the busiest Quad-City intersections and held signs with messages such as “Black Lives Matter,” “No Hate in Our State,” and “Honk for Justice.”
Dedicated people have rallied every Saturday, except when weather was severe.
The half-hour rallies will continue indefinitely every Saturday at noon at the Slumberland (southwest) corner of John Deere Road and 16th Street in Moline. (map)
