Rally Scheduled for Aug. 22d – 3:00-6:00 pm Government Way

There is a planned rally scheduled for August 22, 2020 from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm.  Access south and east out of River Run for that time period will be available.  The event will commence at the Unitarian Church at the corner of N. Govt. Way and Ft. George Wright Blvd.  Here is a summary of the event as it appeared in the Inlander Magazine:

“Local groups, including members of the Spokane Tribe, Unitarian Universalist Church of Spokane and Spokane Arm in Arm, are hosting a public rally to call for the immediate renaming of Fort George Wright Drive due to the atrocities Col. Wright committed against Native peoples of the region in 1858.

The rally begins in the parking lot of Unitarian Universalist Church, and will continue with a peaceful, socially distanced walk down the street. Sat, Aug. 22 from 3-6 pm. Begins at 4340 W. Fort George Wright Drive. More details on Facebook.”
