Orange County

Peaceful rallies across the county

NOT ALL the rallies this week were directly political. These marchers from Living World Christian Church in Garden Grove met in front of police headquarters on Monday and then walked to Main Street to pray for peace (OC Tribune photo).

Orange County continues to be the scene for numerous protests – most of them peaceful – over the death of George Floyd at the hands of police officers in Minneapolis on May 25.

Here’s what we know about events in the area on Tuesday.
