WAUSAU - Chris Norfleet said "peace" won't change anything.
"Because peace led us to one of the most peaceful men in America being murdered - Martin Luther King," said Norfleet.
Norfleet is the president of People for the Power of Love, a Wausau-based organization looking to combat racial injustice.
He's asking people to come to the 400 Block in Wausau this Saturday and have nine minutes of silence for the black community's latest victim of police brutality - but not to stop there.
"You coming in here and just standing will never get us change; neither did peace," said Norfleet.
The riots and protests across the United States have drawn comparisons to the late 1960s, particularly after Martin Luther King, Jr. was murdered.
