Hundreds march against putting a police station in East Liberty - The local Black Lives Matter protest marches have focused on police brutality and as a part of that are demanding that Mayor Bill Peduto drop the consideration of moving the Zone 5 police station from Washington Boulevard in Larimer to North Euclid Avenue in East Liberty. The city needs to move the station because it floods regularly, but residents don't want the police moved back into East Liberty, where the station was located in the last century.

Over the years her gravestone slid down the hillside where she is buried and came to a rest next to Kirtland Street in Point Breeze where they neighbors have taken to tending to her stone, and celebrating the birthday of a little girl who never got a chance to celebrate her own.
See the full story in the August 13 edition of Print.
