June 30, 2014 - About two dozen people made their way to the MLK Center this afternoon and proceeded to march through downtown Erie to get their point across – that point: a need for more jobs in the community.

Gary Horton, CEO of the Urban Erie Community Development Corporation, organized a peaceful march this afternoon.

Horton said pushing for more jobs is important and that even though turnout today was on the low side, the voices of those who are unemployed are still being heard.

Horton says there will be more peaceful rallies in the future.
