ROCKFORD (WIFR) – In downtown Rockford, college students marched to try to put an end to racism.
Students and staff from Rock Valley College marched against racism throughout the city today. They began at Stewart Square and walked to city hall handing out fliers and spreading the word. The group finished at city hall where they chanted their pledge and then spoke with Mayor Larry Morrissey.
"It's accomplishment is to have unity, to show people that we are unified. Rock Valley College is a college of people of different cultures and we all come together to stand as one because we're there to learn and we're there to get to know each other,” said Marcher Jacqueline Bryant.
RVC will continue its stand against racism Thursday with an open mic at the Stenstrom Center.
