Richmond Youth for Social Justice March Against Violence on MLK Day

At 10am on Monday, January 17, 2005 the Calhoun Community Center's sidewalk was jammed with 30-40 people. The heavily bundled crowd braved the 25 degree temperature to march through Downtown Richmond's Gilpin court promoting non-violence. In the middle of the group stood two young men with a banner that read, "Stop the Violence. Sponsored by Youth for Social Justice."
