OKLAHOMA CITY-A second Black Lives Matter protest began Sunday evening.

The march started at Calvary Baptist Church.

One of several rallies organized by the group Black Lives Matter took place Saturday at Will Rogers Park.

The gathering began around 5p.m. and included several speakers, including a local police officer who spoke on the importance of trust and peace between the community and law enforcement.

Organizer, Nakayla Derritt said spreading their message and speaking out against violence was their goal for the rally.

"We all deserve to speak out on how we feel about the events that have happened. Not just now but in the past as well," Derritt said.

"It's time to unite. It's time to put our money where our mouth is. It's time to really make a change in our communities. We can't afford to keep losing too many lives over things that we have control over," Anthony Crawford, who spoke at the rally, said.

Several squad cars patrolled the area, something they intend to do for all the rallies this weekend.
