At 1 p.m. this Saturday, Roses in Roseland will kick off its second annual Peace Parade. Registration begins at 11 a.m. at 119th and Michigan. From founder and community organizer Cleopatra Draper:
Together, the people of Roseland and neighbors from all over Chicago will demand peace during the summer, promote common-sense gun reform, community investment and safety! Please join us for our 2nd annual “Historical Roseland Peace Parade,” as we march along the original Michigan Avenue. Roseland is rich with cultural history and amazing people across the far south side of Chicago.
All registrants are invited to enjoy food, music, a raffle and access to free COVID vaccines.
