Residents participate in Unity March in Biloxi over the weekend

The second Unity March in the past two weeks took place Saturday morning in Biloxi.

The Unity March, organized by Greg Whitfield, began at the Biloxi Town Green, traveled through the streets of downtown, and ended at the steps of Biloxi City Hall.

Speakers included religious leaders from various local churches and Biloxi Mayor Andrew ‘FoFo’ Gilich.

The purpose of the event was to bring awareness and to stand against hate, violence, racism, and discrimination. Protester Jay Inchaustegui said, “I started thinking if I had to go into a neighborhood and I was checked, if every place I go people looked at me with paranoia that I was going to do, it would be horrible.”

Protester Patrick Davis said, “It was important because my family, first of all. That’s why I’m here. And everybody, black, white, we all the same. I just want unity.”
