Local resident organizing peaceful protest walk in Wellington Saturday at noon

Erma Ratliff

Sumner Newscow report — Wellington resident Erma Ratliff said there will be a peaceful protest walk in Wellington this Saturday, June 6.

The walk will start at noon at the Memorial Auditorium where the event will begin with a prayer. The group will then walk down 8th Street towards the old Chisholm Trail Motel and the protest is estimated to end at 1:30 p.m.

“Although Wellington is a small rural community, racism and prejudice of people of color is very much alive,” Ratliff said.

Ratliff said people are more than welcome to make signs and please wear a mask.
