Tens of thousands of peaceful protesters in New York City and Washington, DC, gathered hours before curfew Tuesday to demonstrate against police violence and, in some cases, clean up after some businesses had been vandalized.

In DC, today’s protests follow aggressive police action the night before, when those who had gathered near the White House were tear gassed and forcibly removed half an hour before the 7 pm curfew. This was to give President Donald Trump a chance to stand in front of the historic St. John’s Episcopal Church, the site of a fire Sunday night, for a photo op in which he posed with a Bible. That night, police used helicopters, rubber bullets and smoke canisters to disperse those who remained on the streets. 

Join our reporters Dan Friedman and Will Peischel in DC, and Noah Lanard in New York City, for their coverage of the Tuesday’s marches, into the evening after the curfews drop. 

Thank you!

We didn't know what to expect when we told you we needed to raise $400,000 before our fiscal year closed on June 30, and we're thrilled to report that our incredible community of readers contributed some $415,000 to help us keep charging as hard as we can during this crazy year.

You just sent an incredible message: that quality journalism doesn't have to answer to advertisers, billionaires, or hedge funds; that newsrooms can eke out an existence thanks primarily to the generosity of its readers. That's so powerful. Especially during what's been called a "media extinction event" when those looking to make a profit from the news pull back, the Mother Jones community steps in.

The months and years ahead won't be easy. Far from it. But there's no one we'd rather face the big challenges with than you, our committed and passionate readers, and our team of fearless reporters who show up every day.
