BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – A “prayer for peace” and rally for justice is taking place downtown at 2 p.m. on Friday, June 5.

Participants in Friday’s prayer vigil include Baton Rouge ministers and community leaders.

This prayer vigil is taking place at the Old Louisiana State Capitol and it will be centered around the death of George Floyd.

Organizers say that “business leaders and local ministers will join with residents and community officials to discuss looting, rioting, and protests in the wake of the death of an unarmed black man that has sparked racial tensions in Baton Rouge and throughout the nation.”
