Many people holding signs outside

A group of #BlackPride4 supporters gathered in front of City Hall at 5pm Monday, March 12 to let Columbus City Council know that "Columbus is guilty!" They were calling attention to the Columbus Police Department and their treatment of the Black Pride 4 at last year's Pride parade. Three of the Black Pride 4 will hear their sentences on Tuesday, March 13 at 9am at the Franklin County Munincipal Court building, room 13A, 375 S. High St. They are  also asking for people to fill the courtroom at that time. The activists spoke about the importance of calling out the Columbus Police and city officials on their use of excessive force against black citizens in  general, and particularly the black trans people at the Pride rally.
