Baltimore, MD – Today, Baltimore’s Latino community will gather to march for justice and pray for peace in solidarity with African-American brothers and sisters.

“The murder of Freddie Gray is only the latest and most egregious act of a crippling criminal justice infrastructure that treats young African-American and Latino youth as presumptive criminals,” said Gustavo Torres. “On Thursday, Latinos will march and pray for justice and on Friday we will join with the broader community to act for change.”

On Wednesday, the community will gather CASA’s Baltimore office near Patterson Park then march over to St. Patrick’s Church on Broadway for a prayer vigil. St. Patrick’s Church is one of the original immigrant parishes, established in 1791 to serve Irish laborers. In recent years, it has hosted community meetings to challenge family separation through deportation and the implementation of immigration law by local police.
