A new Belvidere organization promoting social justice and peace has announced a walk and rally set for Saturday, June 27.

Called the Belvidere Social Justice & Peace Society, the group has been featured on WIFR with city officials, police officers, and other members of the team.

The Peace Rally will begin at the Belvidere Community Building at 111 West 1st Street.

The event listing on Facebook says "Members of our community will walk side by side with city officials to State Street bridge and route back to the Community Building.

There will be special guest speakers to address unity, solidarity, and reasons why our members feel that this is a necessary time for all our voices to heard."
