A Protesting Pup

Thousands of people went out to show their support at the Citizens of Equality, Peace and Justice protest in Hackensack last week—and some politically-inclined pups were there too! Hackensack’s Beverly Alvarez snapped this photo of a dog whose owner dressed him in a “black lives matter” ensemble for the occasion. “I saw the dog walking by me as we first started marching on State Street,” Alvarez says. “But then I noticed the dog had a sign on like many of the protesters and I knew I had to take the photo before the owner and the dog walked far from me.” Great shot!
