Defund Police sign

At a June 13 demonstration near the Gainesville Police Department, protesters chant "No justice, no peace," and a sign reading "Defund The Police" can be seen in the background. 


Library West

All libraries except for Library West, which is one of two 24-hour spaces on campus, will resume their usual hours from prior to COVID-19 closures upon reopening in August.


Cultural Center

Organizers explain the gentrification of the Pleasant Street area at the third stop of the protest at A. Quinn Jones Museum and Cultural Center. Danielle Chanzes, a volunteer for the Gainesville Alliance for Equitable Development, said that after Seminary Lane apartments were torn down in 2009, hundreds of Black residents were promised affordable housing as a replacement, but no progress had been made since then.  



GoDDsville Dream Defenders use the stop at the Gainesville Police Department to announce a list of demands that the organization will present to local government officials. Hundreds of fists rise into the air as the crowd chants “No justice, no peace.”
