Awareness Groups in Congress Park

The meeting place. The public stage. Congress Park in Saratoga Springs, NY is more than a beautiful place to relax, take pictures and watch the ducks. It is also used by awareness groups to connect with the local community. I followed up with the non-profit Flutters Of Hope using the park as the starting point for their walk on Broadway to draw attention to eating disorders. Saratoga Black Lives Matter has also used the park recently to host a community outreach event called “Say Their Names” remembering the lives lost to police brutality and racially motivated mass shootings in our nation. I spoke with members from both groups. By Alisha Washington for Hudson Mohawk Radio Network.
