Organizers Work To Keep Black Lives Matter Out Front
Etienne Maurice is trying to keep Black Lives Matter running front-and-center in his neighbors' minds.
The activist-filmmaker has for the past three weeks held walk-runs through his Mid-Wilshire neighborhood, followed by town hall-style forum with protesters.
Protests have waned somewhat as time passes from when George Floyd was killed by a police officer in Minneapolis. But Maurice said he feels a responsibility to keep organizing for the weeks and months to come. He noted the Montgomery bus protests lasted for almost a year.
"We're out on the street occupying space to create a movement," Maurice said. "Not just a moment."
