The march will recognize significant landmarks along the corridors of the West Side and West Center City including the newly painted 8th Street Bridge mural, “Connecting Us”, the Social Justice Alliance mural at the LACC’s Manuelita Olson Building, MLK Jr. Boulevard, and residential neighborhoods on both sides of I-95.
