A group of activists based in Cincinnati will lead a march for justice at the University of Cincinnati with family members of local people who were killed by police.
The families of Samuel DuBose, Samantha Ramsey, Tamir Rice, and John Crawford III will unite for the first time for the “United March for Justice” on Saturday.
“Stand for justice by marching arm in arm with the families of Samuel DuBose, Samantha Ramsey, Tamir Rice and John Crawford III,” Awakened Cincinnatians stated in a release. “Families and friends of the fallen will be traveling from all over the country to participate in this historic event.”
Awakened Cincinnatians, a local group of activists, organized the peaceful march. It will begin at 6 p.m. in front of the UC Police Department at 51 W. Corry St.
Family members of those killed by police are expected to address the crowd before the march begins. At 8 p.m. participants will march to where Samuel DuBose was shot and killed at Rice and Valencia streets.
