Lone Protestors For Black Lives Matter Are Going Viral Because One Person Can Make A Difference (16 Pics)

In big cities, joining a group of like-minded people at a Black Lives Matter protest is very easy. People are protesting the murder or George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and so many others killed by racist police violence, and they’re doing it in enormous numbers in every state. It’s amazing and inspiring.

What’s also inspiring are the people who can’t join a big group, because they live in a place that is affluent and predominantly white or rural and predominantly white. Places where people are more likely to be racist and more likely to trust the police. Places where there is a much smaller population. In those places, standing up for what’s right is a lonelier action, but incredibly moving to see. Below are some of the lone protestors who have shown up to be a voice for BLM and justice everywhere. Every voice counts.
