Nearly 7,000 Christians flooded downtown Atlanta on Juneteenth to peacefully protest and march for the Black Lives Matter Movement. Songs of praise blended with chants of no "Jesus No Peace" echoed throughout the streets as protestors march from Centennial Olympic Park to the Georgia State Capitol.

The march "One Race One Blood," was organized by the One Race Movement. Josh Clemons and Hazen Stevens are Co-Executive Directors of the organization, and their mission is to displace the spirit of racism and release a movement of racial reconciliation across Atlanta, the Southeast, and the nation. According to their website, the march was designed to speak out and petition God and civic leaders for change.

During the march, many of the demonstrators expressed how important it was to stand up against racism and foster a spirit of love for future generations. One woman shared that she was in the process of changing her heart, and marching was helping her with the process.
