Health Care Workers Protest Police Violence Outside Twin Towers Jail in L.A.

Doctors and medical care workers march and rally outside the Twin Towers Jail to express outrage at police brutality, and the killing of George Floyd and numerous other victims on Saturday, June 13, 2020. Drawing a direct connection between the racial inequities in healthcare with the danger Black people face in jails and on the street, they chanted "care not cages" and "defund the sheriff." Some protesters spoke about how challenging it was for their patients to get satisfactory healthcare and felt that more money should be devoted to programs that house people, educate them and keep them healthy.
