BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — More than 20,000 people including actor Chuck Norris marched the streets of Alabama to bring awareness and raise funds for persecuted Christians in the Middle East.
AL.com reports (http://bit.ly/1fLTQ1W ) that attendees marched chanting “All Lives Matter” from Kelly Ingram Park to Birmingham City Hall on Saturday morning. Other signs held during the march read “Justice” with a picture of Abraham Lincoln.
Conservative personality Glenn Beck co-organized the march with Bishop Jim Lowe. Both led the march with Alveda King, a niece of Martin Luther King Jr., in the front row and Norris trailed them from two rows behind.
The march was a part of Beck’s “Never Again is Now” campaign for his initiative.
Around 10,000 registered to attend a “Restoring Unity” rally at the BJCC Legacy Arena on Saturday.
