“We are really trying to emphasize awareness and change in our community, and to erase the racial injustices we see every day in our lives,” said Neal Volz, of the FRRC.

The groups are also joining forces to encourage their members to turn pain into power at voting booths.

They spent the rest of the day registering voters.
