People call for racial justice at march in Franklin Park

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Hundreds of people turned out for a march in Franklin Park Saturday calling for racial justice.

The march began at 3pm and is organized by groups including The People’s Justice Project, a Columbus-based organization. 

Marches are also planned in Cincinnati and Cleveland.
