Activists on a 480-mile March for Democracy reach Modesto

June 14, 2014 

A group of activists, on a 480-mile march from Los Angeles to Sacramento, arrived at Modesto’s Graceada Park on Saturday afternoon. Advocacy group 99Rise, seeking to bring awareness to what they say is money’s corrupting influence in politics, began their California March for Democracy on May 17 and will complete their trek at the Capitol on Sunday.
