Press Release - FTP March - May 2012

May 18, 2012
Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois
On Tuesday, May 15, 2012 a group of protesters marched on Halsted Street from 51st to 31st street, stopping in front of the 9th District Police station to hold a rally and then continued onto Taylor Street.
Several members of Bridgeport Alliance were in attendance as observers.
Bridgeport Alliance would like to join the community in condemning the actions of the individuals who were protesting in Bridgeport on May 15, without the support of the neighborhood. As an organization committed to achieving real change through issue-based community organizing, we believe that demonstrations and protests must be carried out strategically and should be used to build community. We do not approve of the use of obscenity, intimidation or violence. 
Bridgeport Alliance plans to continue working with and for the people of Bridgeport and welcomes community member to join us.
