Activists march to the Brooklyn Bridge on Sunday in New York. Demonstrators took to the streets of New York City to protest the death of George Floyd, who died May 25 after he was pinned at the neck by a Minneapolis police officer.

New York imposes curfews in order to quell violence. Protests form around the region against racial discrimination in policing.
