A wave of protests drew huge crowds of people in cities nationwide this weekend demanding justice for George Floyd, who was killed by a white police officer last week. And while some protests erupted into violence, with people causing damage to property and looting businesses, many demonstrations either remained peaceful or started out that way.
Violent imagery flooded social media feeds, but several powerful moments were captured, too:

Peaceful protest in Minneapolis. Share this. Post this. It’s not exciting, it’s not shocking, but it is POWERFUL. pic.twitter.com/tOIjXrPyJJ
