Social justice march set for Saturday on Monument Avenue in Richmond
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.
