Rollerskaters "Roll to Erase Hate"

Updated: July 11, 2020 10:47 PM

In honor of World Rollout Day, a group of rollerskaters came together on Saturday to quote "Roll to Erase Hit."

A lot of the group are former Harbor City Roller Derby Skaters.

They started at Playfront Park in Duluth, and rolled around Canal Park, and the Lakewalk. Some held signs saying things like "Black Lives Matter", and "Erase Hate."

Organizer Abby Jean Goodell says the goal was to support Black Lives Matter, build community, and spread love.

"I love rollerskating. I love being able to do things with people, and we're being safe and being outside and social distancing. We're also showing support for our most vulnerable neighbors and friends, and seeking justice for everyone," Goodell said.

Goodell says the group is planning to meet to discuss whether to hold similar events in the future.
