NEW HARTFORD, NY - Tuesday saw another peaceful protest take place in the Mohawk Valley to honor George Floyd.
This time in New Hartford.
Around 150 people gathered at the New Hartford Village Green for a candlelight vigil to protest the death of George Floyd.
Since his death protests have erupted across the nation, some turning violent.
That hasn't been the case locally though as peaceful protests are popping up around the community.
At the New Hartford rally, the crowd lit candles and held a moment of silence for Floyd and other victims of police brutality.
Utica councilman Delvin Moody was there and he spoke to the crowd.
"Whether you're in Utica or New Hartford, people care about having police accountability, and transparency. Really just trying to figure out how we can have a civil conversation on how to make our police forces better."
Members of the New Hartford Police Department were also on hand to make sure there were no problems.
The rally ended with the crowd chanting "black lives matter" before everyone left for the evening.
