FOX 35 News was there as groups marched through downtown Orlando, holding signs and chanting following a week of nationwide protests. 

The Orlando Police Department says drivers should expect road closures and increased police presence. 

The protest began at the same time that a second memorial service was being held in North Carolina where Floyd was born. The first service was held in Minneapolis on Thursday -- the city where he died while in police custody.
