The May 25 death of George Floyd while in Minneapolis Police custody has sparked national outrage, and has reignited the Black Lives Matter Movement in towns and cities across the country. In Eugene and Springfield protesters have held marches nearly every day since May 29.

The local movement has galvanized activists to form new advocacy groups seeking to change policing in schools and communities. KLCC News Director and Reporter Rachael McDonald spoke with KLCC Reporters Elizabeth Gabriel and Melorie Begay about ongoing protests in Part I of this special Northwest Passage episode.
