A march is planned Sunday in Pittsfield, Massachusetts following the grand jury decisions to not indict white police officers in the deaths of two black men, leading to protests across the country.Roughly 100 people are expected to take part in a peaceful march through Pittsfield Sunday organized by the Berkshire County Chapter of the NAACP. Member Shirley Edgerton says many in the community share concerns of equality and injustice following decisions to not indict police officers in the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner.

“This is not only just about the black community or the communities of color,” Edgerton said. “The larger issues are about justice and humanity.”

The march is set for 3 Sunday starting at Pitt Park and ending at The Common.
