LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) - The Southside Moms United Group organized a peaceful protest marching from Powell Park to Downtown La Crosse on Saturday.

Organizers said their goal was to respond to George Floyd's death and support equality.

"As moms, we want to just let people know that our black and brown children, brothers and sisters and those that don't identify on the gender binary matter," Southside Moms United Group auxiliary member Heidi Svee said. "We're here and we want to continue this momentum and hopefully make some change here locally."

Svee said the group worked with the La Crosse Police Department for the peaceful march. Squad cars and officers were seen driving ahead of the marchers as they walked.
