Ridgewood NJ,  a Black Lives Matter event was held in Ridgewood on June 3rd from 11am- 2pm just outside the Police Department on Veterans Field . The invite stated , “We will peacefully gather on Veterans Field, on the corner of Maple Street and Linwood Ave outside the Police Department. We join in unity to address racial inequality and demand change in a flawed system. We stand for all those who have lost their lives due to police brutality and those who have been directly impacted by racial inequality. This is not an isolated incident, we are in a national crisis and we must join together and unite. Let us the people take the power back, let us show unity and peace. No more division… no more hate. We must be the change……. Let your voices be heard. Please wear a mask and practice social distancing while we gather.”
