On Saturday, the VoiceBox Media team joined the Amnesty protest in downtown Baltimore and traced a 3.5 mile-march from McKeldin Fountain to the Baltimore City Juvenile Justice Center then to the Baltimore City Jail, the Latrobe Housing Group and back to the McKeldin Fountain.
The peaceful protest was an opportunity for local activists from Philadelphia, North Carolina and Baltimore to show solidarity and to give people voice to their stories while advocating for the release of youth arrested during the Baltimore Uprising.
