Newport News, Portsmouth, Hampton police chiefs join justice rally in Newmarket

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. — Dozens of people were in the parking lot of Newmarket South Shopping Center Sunday night for a rally calling for justice and a call for unity.

Senior Pastor of Little Piney Grove Baptist Church Rashad Cartwright and the nonprofit group Men STAND hosted the event.

It was in response to the death of George Floyd and its message was one of justice and of men, women, and children coming together in the name of justice.

Rashad Cartwright is an Entrepreneur, Pastor, and Community Leader. On September 23, 2016, Mayor Will Sessoms of Virginia Beach, VA, named September 23 'Rashad D.L. Cartwright Day'.
