Northlanders march to dismantle racism
More than 250 people showed up to march
DULUTH, Minn. – Hundreds marched in the streets of Downtown Duluth on Saturday, to address the issue of racism. The Justice City Coalition organized the March to Dismantle the Legacy of Racism and Build a Community of Peace. The marchers joined in with marches happening in cities across the United States. They are calling on elected officials, business owners, and the community as a whole to take a stand against everyday racism.
“We need to take action,” march organizer Kim Young said. “We need to take responsibility, not only at the legislative level, but also at the community level. Everybody who’s gathering here today is here because we’re making a call to action. We’re asking people to really start to dig in and start to dismantle racism in our community.”
More than 250 people came together for the march.
“It’s important to be here today. Because, if you’re not actively speaking out, then you’re being complicit, and there is no room for that anymore,” march organizer Andromeda Lee said.
