In the last week, Beverly Hills has become a microcosm of national unrest. A group of around 75 protesters staged an action in the City on the evening of July 23, shutting down Santa Monica Boulevard for nearly two hours and leading to dozens of arrests. Two days later, mere blocks from the site of the arrests, an equal-sized group of supporters of President Donald Trump rallied at Beverly Gardens Park. A contingent of the demonstrators later confronted Beverly Hills Mayor Lester Friedman at his home.

Black Future Project Protest

The group from July 23, known as Black Future Project, has protested in Beverly Hills three times before. The most recent instance on June 26 resulted in arrests and detentions.
