TALLAHASSEE, Fl. (WTXL) — Several motorcycle groups converged in downtown Tallahassee, Sunday morning, to ride for justice. The "Ride for Justice" went from Apalachee Parkway to the Capitol.

The Tallahassee Chapter of the National Association of Buffalo Soldiers and Troopers Motorcycle Club created the event and road alongside several other motorcycle groups.

Frank Williams with the Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle Club said, "We stand together in support that black lives really do matter and that change really needs to come in terms of how blacks are handled when they are arrested by the police. We are also in support of non-violent protests."

The club does so much more for the community like providing food for needy families and work with the youth.

The vice president of Top of the Line Riders said their group is supporting the Buffalo Soldiers Club, as well as doing other things to support the community. "Voter registration, getting out and making sure that everyone knows what's going on and how we can help within the community, to help push the positivity that we need to see the country change," said Nikki Houston. "We want to see the positivity that's going to come with us going up there, kneeling and showing that at the state capitol."
