On Saturday, June 13th, at 2:30pm, merchants gathered with residents from across the metro to kneel for nine minutes. Families and friends arrived with masks, signs and open hearts for a peaceful demonstration in honor of George Floyd and in solidarity with the Black community. The event was part of the national #KneelForNine movement which encouraged people to kneel in solidarity to grieve and show support for change. Approximately 600 people were in attendance, including many Brookside merchants and residents.
