More than 50 people gathered at Fountain Square around noon to speak about the criminal justice system during the “March for Change” event, organized by Operation Change Cincy. Attendees were able to register to vote at the event. 

The event, which ended around 3 p.m., featured speakers addressing mass incarceration, wrongful convictions, rehabilitation and why it was important to vote.

Operation Change Cincy is focused on strengthening community ties, getting people registered to vote, and educating the public on the upcoming 2020 Election, according to Chazidy Bowman, the event’s main speaker. 

“Change starts today because we are going to give our Black and brown boys (and) girls and LatinX community the opportunity they deserve,” she said. “We will make our own.” 

The event came recently following a grand jury decision to not criminally charge the Louisville Metro Police officers involved in 26-year-old Taylor’s death on March 13.
