After multiple Grand Rapids Latino run businesses shut down Thursday to protest President Donald Trump’s immigration policy, an estimated 2000 protestors marched down Division Avenue on Grand Rapids south side Thursday evening to cap off the city’s “Day without Hispanics.” Catching up with her in full stride, Co-Organizer Allison Kohlberg says the march was all about Latinos getting the respect that they deserve for what they do for the community.
Celebration Cinema and DisArt present their next film event next Wednesday, showing the film Gleason, following NFL player Steve Gleason who came down with ALS early in his career. We talk about the film and the partnership with Celebration Cinema's Emily Loeks.
