Coalition for Justice Peace Circle -WITI news

Hoping to be part of the solution, while promoting a unified community, dozens of volunteers came out Sunday morning in Milwaukee to help clean up after Saturday’s riots left several businesses burned.

The Coalition for Justice led a prayer vigil in the Wisconsin Sherman Park neighborhood and, afterward, participants young and old picked up bags and gloves to clear the debris and ashes around a gas station, beauty store, bank and surrounding buildings.

“We need to continue to love and inspire people with an atmosphere that changes the way they look at things,” said Nate Hamilton, one of the volunteers.

The riot was sparked by the death of a youth who tried to shoot police officers with a stolen gun. The youth’s father later exonerated police for their actions and blamed himself for not being a proper role model for his son.
