Following a protest that led to four arrests by Overland Park police officers last month, more than 100 people marched on State Line Road Saturday evening at Weltner Park calling for racial justice and changes to policing.

Organized by The Miller Dream LLC — the same group that put together the Overland Park protest — the Prairie Village march brought in people from both sides of the state line.

The Miller Dream LLC protests are calling for Overland Park to fire its current police chief Frank Donchez, as well as for Johnson County Sheriff Calvin Hayden to be elected out.

Miller Dream and its several co-organizers including White Rose Society and Black Rainbow are protesting for the following demands, per a Miller Dream’s Facebook post:
