PHOTOS: Hundreds Walk To The Polls In Graham, Days After Police Pepper-Sprayed Marchers

Nov 4, 2020

Several hundred protesters returned Tuesday afternoon to downtown Graham, in Alamance County for an Election Day "peaceful push to the polls" march. The demonstrators engaged in a largely "silent" march, and were encouraged to stay on sidewalks and not engage with law enforcement. 

On Saturday, sheriff's deputies and police pepper-sprayed marchers in the same location.
