Dozens of people participated in the "Good Friday Walk for Justice," a march organized by the 8th Day Center for Justice. It's the 28th year for the event.

Participants came from churches and activist groups throughout the chicago area. The marchers walked through the Loop and stop at several locations to pray and sing. Their goal is to bring attention to social injustice.

This year's theme was "Truth Cannot Be Silenced."

The walk is described as a contemporary stations of the cross. It is modeled after the Christian tradition that commemorates the walk Jesus made to his execution.
