sharpton in chicago

*Rev Al Sharpton is moving to Chicago’s West Side.

The plan is to draw greater attention to the gun violence that plagues the city. Toward that effort, Sharpton said he will rent an apartment and commute home to New York weekly for the next two to three months. Joining him in the same undisclosed building is Martin Luther King III.

Supporting their move are several West Side leaders in the business and faith communities. Also, Congressman Danny Davis says he welcomes the attention this visit will bring. 

Rev. Sharpton preached two sermons Sunday morning at Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ.
