More than 500 people showed up for a “March for Our Lives” vigil on Saturday, March 24, at Park Street and Santa Clara Avenue. The crowd swelled with Alamedans showing their support for the children and expressing their wishes to see an end to gun violence in schools.
The demonstrators proceded down Park Street in a line stretching an estimated five blocks, serenaded by loud cheers and honks of passersby.
The Friends of Alameda Animal Shelter (FAAS) is seeking to renegotiate its contract with the city of Alameda so it can better manage the Alameda Animal Shelter. FAAS sent out a press release to Alameda residents and city leaders stating the reasons it needs more funding for the shelter.
