On Saturday, January 28, 2017 the Albina Ministerial Alliance Coaliiton for Justice and Police Reform will hold a March for Justice and Equality to bring together people from North, Northeast and Southeast Portland and elsewhere.
Gather at 10:00 AM at the Martin Luther King Jr statue at to 1000 block of NE MLK Blvd (at Holladay St), followed by a march to Maranatha Church. At 11:45 AM join a rally at the church (4222 NE 12th).
The theme for the family-friendly event is "Advancing Justice and Equality for All Through the Strength to Love." The date coincides with the 7th anniversary of the death of Aaron Campbell, an unarmed African American man shot by Portland Police in 2010, as well as the transition to a new federal government that potentially threatens the civil liberties of many communities.
