Protesters march along Fairfield Road to bring bus stops for workers

At 12:00 p.m. Saturday afternoon, a group formed from the members of Leaders for Equality and Action in Dayton (LEAD) at the corner of North Fairfield Road and Colonel Glenn Highway to start a protest march on North Fairfield Road over the I-675 Overpass toward the Fairfield Commons Mall.

The organization wants to bring attention to what they feel is a need for RTA bus service to three new stops.

LEAD’s Civil Rights complaint with the Federal Department of Transportation found Beavercreek in violation of Title VI.

LEAD members state the new bus stops would bring access to jobs, education and health care.
