A demonstration is scheduled for Sunday afternoon in Conway to protest police actions in the death of an African American man in Minneapolis and the arrest of an Albany man who recorded state troopers breaking his car window during a traffic stop.

On May 20, five days before George Floyd died in Minneapolis police custody, Jean Saint Preux, 34, of Albany, was arrested after he was stopped for not displaying a state inspection sticker. The situation escalated. He was charged with two counts of simple assault, disobeying a police officer and resisting arrest.
