More Than 1,000 March for Peace in the Northeast

A little rain on Saturday didn't keep Councilmember Reyes and more than 1,000 residents from marching for Peace in the Northeast. The Northeast Clergy Council teamed with the Los Angeles Police Department, government and community leaders to coordinate the 2.7-mile march from Sycamore Grove Park to El Rio de Los Angeles State Park. Their message: Stop the Violence and Increase the Peace.

Reyes, below in video, speaks to how community unity can help ease violence in the Northeast.
