Cyclists Take to New York Streets in Protest of Daunte Wright Shooting

A group of cyclists held a protest ride in New York City on April 13, calling for justice in the death of Daunte Wright, who was shot by police in Minnesota.

“Today we ride to honor the life of a young black man, Daunte Wright, who was taken by a racist system that does not care about people of color,” Riders for Black Lives wrote in a Twitter post about the protest.
