On Oct. 1 a Racial Justice Protest took place at the Arcata Plaza to raise awareness on what it means to be an ally to Black, Indigenous and people of color. Nikki Valencia, protest organizer and artist created an open mic space for community members who are want to share their experiences or messages about the topic.
“We’re making this a monthly event seeing that it was a success and more people were present,” Valencia said.
