Protesters are expected to march to the Massachusetts State House Sunday evening, calling for reforms following the deaths of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky and Ahmed Arbery in Brunswick, Georgia.

The event was scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Protestors will start at Nubian Square in Roxbury and end at the State House.

Organizers have called for a peaceful protest.

People are protesting across the U.S., including in Boston, after the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

The protests come as demonstrations have erupted across the nation, even as Derek Chauvin, the fired officer seen kneeling on Floyd's neck was charged with third-degree murder.

Ten people were arrested Friday during protests in Boston and are scheduled to be arraigned on Monday.

Individuals are encouraged to wear masks due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

The protest is hosted by Black Boston, a community organization, according to the event's Facebook page.

A separate protest was scheduled for earlier in the day.
