Kym Young is a longtime human rights advocate in the Duluth/Superior community where she's worked for social justice and equal rights for marginalized groups.

  She's an elder, she's retired, and by her own admission, she's a vulnerable adult when it comes to COVID-19.

  She's also a veteran of many, many protests and marches.  But when she got a call from the community last Saturday to speak at the march and protest in downtown Duluth to remember George Floyd, she showed up.

  Here are Kym's comments, recorded from the beginning of the march.
