After the march, Tyrese wrote:

Today we made a statement – in this life it’s not about ONLY taking a stand for the things that effect you directly – it’s about taking a stand on behalf of “Humanity”…. I can’t rest until things are different – today we marched a multi ethnic March on behalf of peace and integrity – if you don’t stand for something you will for for anything – safety in our communities and the belief in the “system” needs to be restored – the power in numbers was displayed today/. As comfortable as one would assume I am – I am very uncomfortable cause I have a daughter and we ALL deserve to feel safe……. We don’t call 911 to BE murdered we call them to protect us from being murdered- this need to change-
