LEXINGTON (WACH) -- After several high profile crimes in the midlands, one state lawmaker is taking action.
Lexington County State Senator Katrina Shealy is putting together Where Is The Justice March.
Shealy says after the death of Columbia baker Kelly Hunnewell and several other crimes in the midlands, she wants to see people come together for justice in their communities.
Just this past weekend thousands marched to the State House in support of justice for Florida Teen Trayvon Martin.
Shealy hopes this march can have a similar turnout and make an impact on the Palmetto State.
"Look at what's going on in the City Of Columbia, in Lexington County. We have violent crimes that are happening every day right here. We don't need to be worrying about what's happening someplace else and marching the streets of Columbia worrying about those crimes. Let's fix what's wrong here," said Shealy.
The Where Is the Justice March will take place Saturday August 17th at nine am.
The march will start in front of Carolina Cafe and end on the State House steps.
