RENAME WASHINGTON PARK AT 53RD & KING TO RONALD JOHNSON PARK

RENAME WASHINGTON PARK AT 53RD & KING TO RONALD  JOHNSON PARK

We seek to rename the park to "Ronald Johnson" park, to celebrate the young life of Ronnie Man, honor his family, and all impacted by police violence; as well as honor the 2,500 young people who have been victims of gun violence between 2007 and 2014.

Why is this important?

We ask for your support in renaming this section of Washington Park after Ronald Johnson in order to provide a permanent memorial to his life and legacy, as well as permanently honor all who have been victims to state & intracommunal violence.
