So­cial jus­tice march set for Satur­day on Mon­u­ment Av­enue in Richmond

Richmond Times-Dispatch - - REMEBERING -

As a pre­lude to next week’s pres­i­den­tial in­au­gu­ra­tion, a demon­stra­tion in sup­port of so­cial jus­tice is planned for Satur­day on Mon­u­ment Av­enue.

The eight-block March on Mon­u­ment will be­gin at 1 p.m. at the Lee statue at Mon­u­ment and North Allen av­enues and pro­ceed to the Boule­vard.

Or­ga­niz­ers say the demon­stra­tion will give peo­ple who can’t take part in the Jan. 21 March on Wash­ing­ton a chance to take a stand for equal rights, the en­vi­ron­ment, and pro­grams sup­port­ing chil­dren and the el­derly.
