Peoria residents will host a rally supporting police on Saturday, August 15th starting at 10am at Liberty Park in Peoria.
More about the rally from the Facebook page:
We are not excusing or supporting the officers or departments that are guilty of criminal misconduct. Infrastructure investigations and reform need to happen within some of our police departments. However, the many are paying for the few right now. Our civil servants here in Peoria and nationwide are being profiled, attacked and vilified without provocation. Our officers and first responders sacrifice their personal lives and safety for us every day. They are hardworking, dedicated, honest, GOOD people and the voices of protestors should not be the only ones they hear. Come show our men and women in blue that they are supported, appreciated, and much needed.Details:
This is a one mile march. Meet at Liberty Park next to the old Hooters building. We will proceed down Water Street, up State and stop in front of the police department to make some noise and show our support. The march will continue down to Washington Street, up Main concluding at the Courthouse Square.Keynote Speaker: Allison Salinas Candidate for US Senate 2022
Additional Speakers: Paul Durr & Pete Papadoulis
