The March for Youth that was scheduled for this weekend has been postponed. This morning we received an email from march organizer John Hoole, who said the march leadership wanted to avoid conflicts with and detracting from the Juneteenth celebration that is happening all weekend long at Pratt Park.
They are now looking for a date in August to hold the march. (we’ve updated our calendar entry to August 15th as a placeholder).
The march was to have gone from MLK Memorial Park in Mount Baker to Judkins Park, and was intended to support youth in the city who are suffering from a wave of gang-related violence and bring south end and Central District communities together.
