“Justice For All” March in Washington

On December 13th, I travelled with a group of Friends Seminary upper school students and faculty to D.C to attend the “Justice For All” March in light of the recent police killings of unarmed black men, specifically Michael Brown. Along with Al Sharpton, members of Brown’s family, Trayvon Martin’s family, and Tamir Rice’s family all spoke as well. We marched peacefully towards the Capitol Building, and I was specifically surprised with the relaxed state of the few police officers who were there to watch over the march, something I’m not used to living in New York. Overall, I felt that the message of the March was stated in a clear and bold fashion from what I saw as a successful March, which I enjoyed being a part of.
