Father Michael Pfleger said Monday the march on the Dan Ryan Expressway demonstrated one thing above all, it’s time for serious and immediate action.
“I think at the end of that, people felt really empowered,” Father Pfleger said. “And felt like they had made a statement that ‘We’re upset, we’re mad and time’s up on waiting.”
The historic peace march shut down the expressway. It stopped traffic and started a conversation.
“It certainly has gotten the attention by those in power,” Father Pfleger said. “We’ve been getting responses from Indonesia, London and Germany. Now though, comes the solution.”
