MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Members of George Floyd’s family, along with others who lost loved ones to police encounters, have joined activists and citizens for a march as part of events marking the one-year anniversary of Floyd’s death.

Sunday's march was one of several events planned nationwide by the George Floyd Memorial Foundation to mark the one-year anniversary of Floyd’s death.

Other events in Minneapolis ahead of the anniversary include a virtual “day of action” that encourages people to organize remotely and two panels with the families and other activists on Monday, followed by a community festival on Tuesday.
