The Justice League NYC paid a visit to The Breakfast Club this morning to talk about racial injustice, the 250-mile march that they’ve organized against police brutality, in which they have chosen to walk from New York to Washington, D.C., Harry Belafonte being the founder of their organization and the disconnection of the message and the people. So far, one-hundred people have signed up for the eight-day commitment. The march hasn’t even begun yet and the group is already experiencing resistance from other organizations, counties, police, and more. Instead of staying in hotels, they’ll stay in churches and community centers with other volunteers. There will be rallies, performances and more when they make it to Washington, they’ll have meetings with congress to try to pass three bills. Their starting point is in Staten Island at Richmond Valley Station on Amboy Road at 9AM on Monday morning.
