People are angry about the this week's events, including the murder of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile. There will be a march held on this upcoming Monday of July 11th, 2016. We will start at Springfield City Hall and head towards Federal Courthouse.
The starts at Springfield City Hall, 36 Court Street, and ends at the Federal Courthouse 20 minutes away. A rally will be held in front of the Courthouse. Speakers include Talbert Swan, President of NAACP Chapter, who has a history of fighting police brutality, and Councilor Adam Gomez.
The goal here is to get the Department of Justice to take action not only on these cases but devising a plan to assure less of these situations occur in the future. We will be collecting letters of thoughts and prayers as well as financial contributions to send to the families of these two men. The goal being to assist with funeral costs, legal fees during upcoming trials and college education fund for their children. We are calling it the FAMILY BOX.
Jill Stein and fellow members of the Green-Rainbow Party will be marching.
