GRAFTON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Protesters marched peacefully through Grafton Friday to raise awareness of racism and call for an end to police brutality.
In a Target parking lot, they gathered to raise their voices against racism.
"It's important that we create spaces outside of the cities for folks to create a demand for justice," said organizer Brittany Vulich.
This was Vulich's first time organizing a protest. She was please by how many people showed up.
Police estimate at least 300.
After speeches and kneeling for eight minutes and 46 seconds, protesters marched down Highway 60 with the help of local police.
They ranged in age from infants to seniors.
Keri Wuenstel pushed her knee cart along with the march.
"I just can't stand by and watch what's happening to fellow human beings here," she said.
Erica Turner lives in Cedarburg and was surprised by the turnout.
"It's impressive, it's surprising. Weren't sure how many people were going to come, so it's good to see that people care."
Vulich hopes this march creates momentum and keeps going in these communities.
