Prayer rally held in South Bend

SOUTH BEND, Ind.--- South Bend's religious community gathered in Jon Hunt Plaza for a prayer rally Sunday. The rally was held as another way to protest police brutality following the killing of George Floyd in Minnesota.

South Bend Mayor James Mueller, former US Senator Joe Donnelly and Notre Dame President Father John Jenkins were all in attendance of the rally.

"People across the political spectrum, people young and old, black and white, are coming together to push for racial justice and the change we need to see that is long overdue," said Mueller. 

The rally included speeches and prayers from different religions to show unity in the fight against police brutality.

"We’re all human, we all make mistakes, we all do certain things but unity is what’s going to bring us together and bring it peacefully," said Keisha Jacobs. 

Hundreds attended the rally to pray and demand change.

"We all need God in our lives and we all have one goal, that is to treat each other equally," said Kim Redman.

Following the rally several people marched through downtown South Bend to continue the conversation.
