Start walking

Posted by wlpo on April 22, 2012

A Chicago pastor who camped on the roof of an abandoned motel for three months to draw attention to gun violence has a new plan. The Reverend Corey Brooks says he’ll set out on a three-month walk on June 5th. The goal is to raise $15 million for the community center he wants to build on the site of the motel, which had become a haven for prostitution and drug dealing on Chicago’s South Side.
