GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) -- A group of demonstrators marched along Grand Rapids streets Friday evening for a demonstration against racial injustice.
Members of the Madison Square Church and others joined together for the march. They gathered at Madison Square Church (1441 Madison Ave. SE), moved to Grace Christian Reformed Church (100 Buckley St. SE), and then headed to Fulton and Division.
In light of the recent deaths of Eric Garner in New York City and Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, participants in Friday's march said they hope to move from discussions about racial issues to action on them.
"This is an action step," said Madison Square Church Pastor Darrell Delaney," so we're moving from meditation and reflection to action now. We as Christians cannot bury our heads in the sand and ignore things that are happening in our current world today."
