The organization's last march attracted more than 30,000 New Yorkers
Four months after Millions March NYC organized a march that drew more than 30,000 protestors demanding justice for Eric Garner and Michael Brown, the organization’s two young founders are at it again.
Synead Nichols and Umaara Elliot announced on their Twitter page that Millions March NYC will be hosting a peaceful protest for Freddie Gray this evening at 6 p.m. ET in New York City’s Union Square.
“Stand with us tonight in solidarity with #Baltimore in Union Square at 6pm. #BaltimoreUprising,” reads a tweet advertising the march.
The march comes two days after riots and protests have left the city of Baltimore in turmoil. Two hundred people were arrested, and more than 100 buildings and cars were set on fire. A citywide curfew went into effect last night, banning anyone from being outside between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. Though the riots have waned, hundreds of Baltimoreans are still marching in the streets for justice.
