She added the March is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. on the river side of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association building and will follow a two-mile route over the footbridge and down Chisholm to Culligan Plaza where there will be information tables and speakers.
Council approved the march by unanimous vote.
