Southbury Group Holds Peaceful Rally in Wake of Surge in Asian-American Violence

NBC Universal, Inc.

A group called "Justice Southbury" held a peaceful rally at Playhouse Corner on Sunday in the wake of a recent surge in violence against Asian-Americans across the country.

The group is made up of over 400 local volunteers.

"If we sit and remain complacent, then we're just feeding into the injustices in our society," Colette Mombo said.

The group has held rallies for 43 weeks straight since the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis last May.

Court proceedings have begun in the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, who is charged with second-degree murder in the killing of George Floyd. Attorney Michael Starr Hopkins joined LX News to explain the importance of the first phase of the trial — jury selection.
