Approximately 1,500 peaceful protesters, including several Cal State Fullerton students, chanted underneath a cloudy sky along the intersection of Highland and Commonwealth avenues. Unlike the protest that occurred at the same intersection on May 30, visible police presence was scarce as the crowd raised up signs and shouted as passing cars honked.

Faith Forcucci-Morris, who organized the event with her husband, Conner, and grew up in Fullerton herself, said that they want to keep pushing for progress.

“The purpose is to honor the Black Lives Matter movement, as well as the Indivisible movement. We need to vote Trump out of office. We need changes to police reform and we need to defund the police and make our community better for everyone,” Forcucci-Morris said. “This is a place that means a lot to me, and instead of leaving for someplace better I want to fix it.”
