Rev. K.W. Tulloss of the Baptist Ministers Conference of Southern California speaks to the media during the March and Demonstration for George Floyd in downtown L.A. on June 2. (ABC7 News).

The Rev. K.W. Tulloss, president of the Baptist Ministers Conference of Southern California, assembled a protest on June 2, to honor the life of George Floyd, an African American man who was murdered on May 25, in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Clergy from throughout the Los Angeles community participated to demonstrate solidarity and demand justice for George Floyd.

“It is not enough to remain silent. It is the responsibility of the church to shine light on dark situations. Now is the time for leaders of faith to voice our concerns in the spirit of our beliefs,” Tulloss stated.

L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti joined Tulloss and the ministers in kneeling in prayer. Participating organizations included Baptist Ministers Conference, Southern Christian Leadership Conference, National Action Network Los Angeles (Pastor Jonathan Moseley), Churches in Action (Bishop Juan Carlos Mendez) and many local churches and pastors.
