Black Lives Matter March – Ames
March 25, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
From the organizer:
We will be having a Black Lives Matter march and rally in Ames, IA on Saturday, March 25th.
The plan is meet at the front of Brookside Park (1325 6th St., Ames, IA 50010 for those unfamiliar with Ames) at 2 pm. Once assembled, we will begin our march from there. The planned route is walk up 6th St. across the initial bridge, turn right on Northwestern, walk across another bridge going above Grand Ave., then go the rest of the way towards the rally point at United Church of Christ located at 217 6th St.
We have a rally planned at the UCC featuring some invited speakers. We also plan to open the floor to members of the community to share their personal experiences, with particular attention given to black residents and other people of color and marginalized groups.
