Public Defenders for Black Lives Matter

On June 8th, 2020, members of the Public Defenders, both Federal and State, marched across America in support of Black Lives Matter. 

Starting from the Martin Luther King Jr. memorial statue in the Anchorage Park Strip, dozens joined together to march together for Black Lives Matter, and spent 8 minutes and 46 seconds kneeling in silence in front of the Nesbett Courthouse in downtown Anchorage.  A silent tribute, and protest, to the senseless death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who died in a display of police brutality that’s sparked outrage and ongoing protests across the nation.
