Black Lives Matter Cerna

Zyrianna Cerna and her grandfather, former Waterloo Police Chief Bernie Koehrsen sit together at Cerna's Iowa Falls home.

The country has erupted in peaceful protest, rioting and everything in between since George Floyd was killed in Minneapolis on May 25.

Iowa Falls is tucked away neatly in the center of what is one of the least diverse states in the country. But that doesn't mean the fight for racial justice doesn't touch those here, both young and old.

All lives matter


Thanks for standing up for black lives and for writing about this worthy effort! I yearn for the day when it is abundantly clear to all that black lives do matter, and that that is reflected in all laws, policies, procedures, and institutions!
