A March For Us

We March For Us hit the pavement before holding a picnic in Omaha's Fontenelle Park on Saturday to bring awareness to substance abuse, violence, poverty and other community issues.

There were bounce houses for the kids and volunteers offered free hamburgers and hot dogs. Salem Baptist Church gave away 750 pounds of groceries.

"Unite and peace in our streets,” said J. Shannon of We March For Us. “It's about being one Omaha together for a common goal and a common cause, which is us empowering each section of Omaha to be equal economically, education-wise and every aspect."

The Next Youth Empowerment Movement assisted organizing this year's march. Next Youth marched against underage drinking.
