FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – More than 100 people turned out Sunday evening for a silent protest at the Allen County Courthouse.

The event was largely organized through social media after a turbulent week of violence across the United States.

Organizers said on Facebook they are standing against gun violence, police shootings, racial profiling and are working to inspire the community to unite against injustice.

While the protest was silent, attendees were encouraged to express themselves with signs and t-shirts.

Those in attendance held signs, some read, “Her Life Matters,” with an arrow pointing to a woman next to the sign. Another sign said, “Peace for all races.”

Some stood in silence with duct tape across their mouths.

The protest took place on the grass of the courthouse near South Clinton Street.

Police didn’t report any problems with the protesters Sunday evening.
