LIVE BLOG: Students lead 'I am for peace' march on South Side

About 2,000 Perspectives Charter Schools students today will lead a peach march and rally to “disrupt” the violence in Chicago neighborhoods between two South Side locations of Perspectives schools.

Business, faith and community leaders will join students on the “I Am for Peace” march, starting at 9:30 a.m. Thursday. It will stretch from 22nd and State streets to 36th Street and Wabash Avenue, where it will end with a “peace jam,” it said.

For more information about the march, read Mary Mitchell’s column, Teen march honors civil rights tradition.
