TONAWANDA, N.Y. — All was peaceful during a Black Lives Matter rally that took demonstrators through the cities of Tonawanda and North Tonawanda.
About 80 people marched through the main business district streets of both cities on Thursday, and they were escorted by several local police agencies.
An event on Facebook was created and shared stating that the issue isn’t just a City of Buffalo issue, but a Western New York issue, and that they wanted their voices be heard.
The event will take place from 5 to 7 p.m.
The event organizers said there would be a few speakers before the march and that people could bring your bikes, skates, or walk for the cause.
