PHOTOS: White Plains’ Vigil for George Floyd

Photos by Alex Acaro

As rallies, protests, and vigils continue to pepper Westchester, local photographer Alex Acaro captured these moving images from the heart of the county.

Not two weeks after Minneapolis resident George Floyd was killed by four police officers, vigils, rallies, marches, and protests against the use of deadly force by law enforcement have spread to all 50 states and at least 18 foreign countries. Westchester citizens joined in as early as last week, with independent gatherings taking place in cities like Yonkers, Peekskill, and in the county center itself, White Plains.

Local photographer Alex Acaro was able to attend the White Plains rally, and brought back these powerful photos of Westchester mobilizing to memorialize Floyd and peaceably demand justice and a radical overhaul of American police policies. Check out the photos below.
