On Saturday Morning, more than 20 people from the Orange County NAACP, The Orange County LULAC Foundation, and the Democratic Party of Orange County joined together for a #MilesForMichael March and Rally. Starting at the LULAC offices in Garden Grove, the demonstrators walked the five miles to the Anaheim Police Department on Harbor Blvd. in Anaheim.
The purpose of the march was to demonstrate solidarity with the protesters in Ferguson, MO and the family of Michael Brown, Jr. and to call attention to the disparate treatment of minorities by some police departments across America. Anaheim has been a focal point of protests and concern in Orange County over alleged excessive use of force.
Our lead photographer Lou Delgado was on hand, walking with the demonstrators for the entire walk. His photos from the march and rally can be found on the slide shoe HERE.
