Thank You Pioneering Change for Organizing Rally


Merchon Green, CEO of Pioneering Change, Inc., deserves our community’s full gratitude for organizing a peaceful Rally Against Police Brutality on Sunday, May 31st.  The rally included hundreds of people from all walks of life in Indian River County—all ages, all races, all ethnicities, all political affiliations.  Those individuals lining 41st Street were a microcosm of all our residents.


The people residing in Indian River County made an earnest and open statement that racism and police brutality do not have a place in our community.  And while discrimination against any one segment of our population diminishes us all, at the rally the message was clear, “Black lives matter.”
