CANFIELD, Ohio (WKBN) – Protesters took to the sidewalks to protest racism in Canfield Sunday.

According to one of the organizers, it started because of an offensive post on social media.

About 60 people showed up to join in and received more support from people driving by.

“It was outstanding. Most of the people will be beeping their horns and waving and showing support. Occasionally, we had the non-supportive person, but they were probably outnumbered 30, 40 to one,” said Jay Cohen, co-organizer.

The group does plan on continuing protests.

They are planning one more for Canfield and one in Poland.
