Peaceful Demonstrations In Honor Of George Floyd To Take Place In Laramie This Week

A Group of local residents held a peaceful demonstration in Laramie on the evening of June 2nd. The Laramie Police Department monitored the event and there were no concerns. Police Department officials have been in contact with the event organizers, who intend to hold similar demonstrations each evening this week at 5:00 pm. They are committed to conducting their demonstrations legally, peacefully, and with a minimum of public inconvenience.

The Laramie Police Department vigorously supports all citizen’s rights to peacefully demonstrate any cause. Demonstrations that have not gone through a permitting process must be held entirely on sidewalks or private property whose owners have allowed them to gather, and all local laws must be followed. We urge residents who are not involved in the demonstrations to respect all voiced viewpoints and personal
perspectives.

All citizens should expect some minor delays around the walking demonstrations, which are scheduled to go from the Downtown Plaza at 1 st & Grand, to 15th & Grand, then back to the Plaza.
