A Lafayette pastor held a series of skits and performances on Saturday, depicting people affected by crime and the pandemic.

The road was blocked off for the performers, who used props, makeup, and music for the different scenarios.

Pastor Lawrence Levy wanted to use the demonstrations to make people more aware of communities that are hurting during this time.

Levy said he hopes that those at the demonstration can take away the fact that if communities come together, they can make changes "in our world as a people and not point the finger at one particular body of people. Whites, blacks, not the politicians by themselves, not the policemen by themselves. We all need each other."

His favorite part of the event was being able to see the reality portrayed through the demonstrations, he said as he pointed behind himself to a skit involving several people layiing on the ground acting as if they were deceased.

He added that the demonstration was a way for him to exhibit love to the community.

"We engage with one another everyday, and until we get to a place where we can love one another, I don't see anything changing. So I'm out here to do that."
