HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Hundreds of people are expected to take to the streets in a rally and “March for Justice” in Hartford.

In a release, the NAACP said “yes, we have made some strides, but we yet have a long way to go. So join with the NAACP, the Brotherhood, the CT ACLU, members of the state’s Black and Latino Caucus, and your family and friends from across the state on Wednesday.”
Marchers will assemble at 3 p.m.in front of the Legislative Office Building 300 Capital Avenue, in Hartford, CT., with the March beginning at 5:00 p.m. The march will continue down Capitol Avenue, take a left on to Main Street, pass Capitol Community College and rally at the Hartford Skate Park at the corners of Main and Morgan Street.
