BALLWIN, Mo. — Several protests are scheduled for Wednesday, June 3 outside of the St. Louis metro area.
One march in St. Charles will start at the St. Charles Cinema at 3 p.m. A second march in St. Charles begins at 6 p.m. at Schlafly and will proceed down Main Street.
The City of St. Charles announced that City Hall will close to the public at 2:30 p.m. and reopen on Thursday at 8 a.m. Residents can still reach the city via phone or through its website, it said on Facebook.
A family-friendly march in Ballwin will start at the Ballwin Government Center in Vlasis Park at 6 p.m.
These peaceful protests will be similar to marches Monday afternoon in downtown St. Louis and O’Fallon, Missouri. At those gatherings, people banded together with signs and without violence – even hand-in-hand with law enforcement at times.
Group organizers say making a difference goes beyond raising awareness on social media.
Protests across the country are demanding justice for George Floyd.
