A rally and march in downtown Dalton Friday, titled "March for Justice" will be escorted by police as they march from Harmon Field to the Whitfield County Courthouse and the Dalton Green.

The march is scheduled to begin at about 4:00pm Friday afternoon at Dalton’s Harmon Field football stadium. 

From there, marchers will be escorted east on Crawford Street and across Thornton Avenue to the Courthouse. 

The demonstration and rally will then move to the pavilion area at the Dalton Green and is expected to last into the evening hours, according to Bruce Frazier, spokesman for the Dalton Police Department. 

Motorists should expect traffic in the Thornton Avenue to be affected briefly by the march.
