Peace/unity march to be held today

SALISBURY — Organizers for a peace/unity march held today ask participants to meet in the Big Lots parking lot, Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue at 12:30 p.m.

The march will begin at 1 p.m. and marchers will then travel onto East Innes Street and then walk down Innes Street to Park Sterling Bank, 401 W. Innes St.

The march is in response to the shootings of two black men last week in Louisiana and Minnesota, and the shooting of police in Dallas. The negative response and backlash to both made organizer Rhonna Woodruff Oglesby want to stand up and be heard.

There will be a Salisbury Police escort from the store to the bank to ensure the safety of the marchers. An officer will follow in front and back of the marchers and at the intersections as they walk down the street to make sure motorists are stopped. A bus will drive marchers back to their cars.
