Standing in Solidarity by Justin Merriman

Kimberly Jivers, 24, of Shadyside stands in silent protest with a group of over 100 in Market Square who stood in solidarity with others around the country against police brutality, an organizer said, on Tuesday, July 12, 2016. “There's several other instances of police brutality in Pittsburgh, so the African American community in Pittsburgh 100 percent relates to what's going on around the country,” said Ayodeji Young, 38, of Homewood, a board member of the Alliance for Police Accountability and a demonstration organizer. “We're really chanted out, and we're marched out, protest(ed) out, we've done so much of those things so now we're going to just stand in silence and make you acknowledge that we're here, we exist, and there is a presence here,” Young said.
