‘Protest for Peace’ Sunday at Jones Park
People have been protesting for change across the country. Last weekend, we saw several peaceful protests around the Gulf Coast and we can expect to see more this weekend.
On Sunday there will be a protest for peace held at Jones Park in Gulfport. The mission of this protest will be to get the people out and talking about issues that affect our community.
There will also be voter registration forms so people can make their voices heard around election time.
Event organizers will also be hosting a fundraiser for community cleanup and restoration. Community Activist D’Laun Ball said, “I’m a big believer that nobody can want more for you than you want for yourself. This is our community. We can’t expect politicians who don’t even live in their own city anymore to want better for us. Things start at a base level. On a base level for us, it’s doing the work necessary to spread the word and even possibly doing the work ourselves. That’s important.”
The protest will be Sunday June 14th at 4 p.m. at Jones Park.
