Brianna and Mary Jane
Brianna- "I'm from New Jersey but I'm currently attending George Washington University getting my graduates degree. I'm here because I feel like I need to be here. It's a moment that will definitely go down in the history books. Along with everyone out here, I'm also here due the great of amount of police brutality and prejudices that's been going on as well.
I live in a white Jewish town, and notoriously every year the cops would shut down our birthday party while letting everyone else do whatever they want to. Like, literally. Everyone else could be having a fireworks party and the cops won't shut anything down.
I hope that when this is all said and done that there will be a decrease in the violence in D.C. because it's been a great amount of it lately..."
Mary Jane- "I'm simply here because black lives matter."
