Rally to support fairness for black and Latino youths

Marchers dressed in clothes from the 1840s will call for modern-day justice in hiring and pay at 4 p.m. Thursday in what organizers call Harriet Tubman’s March for Jobs, Fairness and Black and Latino Youths Pay Equity.

The rally will gather at Main and Utica streets and proceed via a caravan up Main to East Ferry Street, then to Jefferson Avenue and the Merriweather Library at Jefferson and East Utica Street, where a brief program will be held.

The rally is hosted by We Are Women Warriors, who promise weekly rallies beginning in April if no progress is made on job opportunities. They ask marchers to wear 1840s clothes or the red, black and green colors of liberation. For more information, call County Legislator Betty Jean Grant at 602-5877 or Charley H. Fisher at 650-8889.
