Yesterday over 2000 people marched for Public Education tracing the route of the 1960’s open housing marches led by the NAACP Youth Commandos and Fr. James Groppi.
The Grand Marshall of the march was the Honorable Vel Phillips, a leader of the Commandos and a civil rights leader throughout her life. She was accompanied by Peggy Rozga, the wife of James Groppi, and members of the Youth Commandos.
