She reflected on the experience: "My kids researched and found this peaceful protest that we attended today. It was organized by teenagers and was 2k-3k strong. My girls made our signs and wanted to be the 1st ones there. You have to talk to your children so that they understand because they too want their voices heard."

Like Gizelle, many citizens and activists who have stepped up at protests, rallies, and vigils to support the Black Lives Matter movement in the wake of George Floyd's alleged murder at the hands of a police officer after he was arrested on May 25 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Prior to attending the protest, Gizelle also encouraged Americans to get out and vote. "I have been praying day and night for CHANGE. Please VOTE locally for people that are US, love US and want to be fair to US."

Gizelle grew up around powerful activism. Her father, Curtis Graves, was a major force in the Civil Rights Movement and worked with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He served in the Texas House of Representatives from 1967 to 1973, the first African American to do so since 1899.

He was also recognized for his "distinguished public service career" in Congress on July 28, 2015. "I would like to thank Curtis M. Graves for his lifelong career of public service and for his many contributions to our nation," Maryland Congressman Chris Van Hollen said about Curtis, whose legacy is now part of the Congressional Record.

Later on,  in 1974, he began a 30-year career working for NASA in the agency's Academic Affairs Division and ultimately as its Director for Civil Affairs.
