SOLANA BEACH, Calif. (KGTV) — Protests continue to move into the suburbs and other cities of San Diego County, including one Wednesday morning in Solana Beach along Highway 101.

Mayor of Solana Beach Jewel Edson helped the two organizers put a rally together in the beach community in less than 24 hours.

“We really wanted to this to be our city coming together,” said Edson.

Roughly 100 people showed up with signs at Solana Beach City Hall.

Susana Arnold, one of the two organizers, said "this is the passion that is existing in all of us, that is absolutely sick of the injustice. I think posting memes and sitting watching the news is not enough."

The group, including many families with small children, took a knee at city hall before taking their march up the 101.

Arnold and co-organizer Tina Zucker said they wanted their march to be local, peaceful and safe. Many cars driving by honked in support.

"We are powerful once we say something," added Zucker.
