The steady rain kept most participants under a large tent, as many made signs and ate light snacks. Brian Wright sang stirring gospel songs before the march began down Centre Ave. to the County Courthouse in Downtown Pittsburgh.

At the Courthouse, speakers included Minister Jasiri X of the NOI-Nation of Islam, local activist and victim of police violence Cecelia Wheeler, Justin Krane from Pittsburgh Organizing Group, Thomas Merton Center Board President Pete Shell, Industrial Worker of the World member Kenneth Miller, Titus North-Green Party Candidate for Mayor, Celeste Taylor-PittsburghOct. 22nd Coalition and Tim Stevens-B-PEP, Black Political Empowerment
Project.

On this day across the country, thousands gathered in other cities to speak out and act against police brutality, to resist and give courage to others.
