Community unity across the North State

OROVILLE, Calif. – As protests across the nation continue - many resulted in levels of violence. So far in the North State region, it's been limited. 

Protests have been peaceful, with one exception where tensions rose for a moment Tuesday in Redding.

Action News Now spoke with Executive Director, Bobby Jones, senior with the African American Cultural Center in Oroville. While the coronavirus has limited people from visiting in-person, the center has been a resource staple for African American families and communities.

Following last week's in-custody death of George Floyd, Jones said he's proud of the community efforts to stand in solidarity with one another.

“I appreciate all the allies that have reached out to me personally to see how they could help,” Jones said. “I'm glad people are showing civilians and law enforcement hugging up because that officer doesn't speak for every officer in America. He might speak for some, don't get me wrong, but he doesn't speak for every officer in America and we have to make those communities understand that.”

Jones pointed to police departments and Congressmen Doug LaMalfa who have all reached out to offer support and help. Jones hopes that cities like Chico, Oroville, and Redding can continue setting the example for unity in the community.
