For the second consecutive Sunday, Candice Spivey organized “We Matter: A Peaceful Protest” on the steps of Rome’s City Hall from 3 until 5 p.m. At 2:30 p.m., only the orange cones were out front as well as a single police cruiser. The crowd soon arrived to take part in another peaceful demonstration, drawing all races, community leaders and even a few candidates.
