SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News)- Protesters gathered for the fifth night in a row downtown Salt Lake City on Thursday.

The event was peaceful. ABC4 captured protesters having a discussion with Utah Highway Patrol troopers, one of them a black man.

“You have a black platform. You have a male platform. You have an officer’s platform…you are very powerful and I need you to help empower,” a black female protester said the trooper.

This is just one of my conversations happening in our state since Floyd’s death. Watch ABC4’s Brittany Johnson moderates a discussion with Representative Sandra Hollins, Former Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski and Lashawn Williams, Ph.D., Doctor of Education at Utah Valley University.
