Press conference announcing Fathers for Freedom March

PHOTO BY CHUCK HOVEN Thursday, June 18, 2020; Press conference announcing Fathers for Freedom March, 3607 Pearl Road in front of Riverview Cemetery: Ward 7 Councilman Basheer Jones urges “every father who loves his son or daughter to stand up” and march on Father’s Day “for the protection of their children as well as to call for justice in the shooting death of 22-year old Desmond Franklin.” Franklin, who died on the spot where the press conference was held from shots fired by an off-duty Cleveland police officer, was the father of four young children. Accompanying Jones at the press conference are members of the Cleveland Clergy Coalition, Cleveland Alphas in Action, the Cocharan Firm and Stan Jackson.
