LAKEVIEW — On Thursday, protesters took to the streets of Lakeview to call attention to gun violence in Chicago and call for more economic investment and job opportunities on the city’s South and West sides, particularly for people of color.
More than 100 demonstrators made their way to Wrigley Field after a nearly two-hour march that started just south of Belmont Avenue in Lakeview before making its way onto Lake Shore Drive.
The peace march and rally organized by Rev. Gregory Livingston and anti-violence activist Tio Hardiman was aimed at redistributing the pain felt by South and West side communities to those on the North Side.
