At the Capitol, hundreds walked to support the Not One More Life March on Saturday.
“It’s a blessing to be able to just use my platform,” said a former Husker football player, Kerion Williams. “God gave it to me. It would be wrong for me not to use it,” said a former Husker football player, Kerion Williams.
Williams led many people on a march from the state Capitol to the UNL campus, repeating the names James Scurlock, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and voicing change should happen in the policing system.
“I truly believe that our policing system needs a policing system,” said Williams. “I believe there should be some type of rating system. I do believe that it’s a privilege to be a police officer, not a right. So, I think that the right step needs to be taken to make sure that people’s lives aren’t getting taken.”
Before the march, former and current Husker greats spoke to the crowd, including Eric Crouch, a former Husker quarterback.
“Whether it’s your family, extended family, when you hear something that just isn’t right, say something. That’s the problem,” said Crouch.
UNL’s Director of Player Development Ron Brown calls for action through religion as he speaks to the crowd, reminding them, love your neighbor.
“The most passionate thing I could say is to trust Jesus Christ for eternal life and if you are a follower of Jesus Christ continue to present that,” said Brown. “Know Christ and make it known that was my mission today.”
Williams says, “Love is the answer and unity is power and I think when you truly come together as a people, you can make things change. I think it’s just up to you to make the decision.”
