The Florida Rights Restoration Coalition (FRRC) assembled hundreds of motorcycle riders from across the country to “Ride for Racial Justice” in Florida.

After the success of their Orlando event, FRRC traveled to different cities throughout the state to raise awareness about police accountability, racial disparities in the criminal legal system and encourage voter participation.

The first ride of the tour was held on Saturday, July 11, beginning at the A. Philip Randolph Heritage Park in Jacksonville, FL.

The Jacksonville ride is part of an ongoing tour that began last month at the FRRC headquarters in Orlando.

“Change is needed in order to fix our broken criminal justice system. But the only way to fix it is by voting,” said Desmond Meade, FRRC’s Executive Director. “We have to elect pubic servants who we believe will incorporate the changes we want to see.”
