The rain held off as dozens gathered to call for justice in the death of Natasha McKenna, at the hands of Sheriff deputies in the Fairfax County jail. Attorney Harry Volzer read a statement from the family. Several of Natasha's brothers and sisters attended the rally.

Students for Change is a group of rising seniors (Ann Rowan, Cassie Marcotty, Marley Finley, Abby Conde and Lidia Amanuel) at JEB Stuart High School who came together to change the name, mascot, and colors of their school, named after a Confederate General.
The school was founded as a part of Massive Resistance, the policy implemented by school boards across the South to avoid integration following the Brown v. Board of Education hearing of 1954.
