Catholic Charities partners with LMPD for peace walk

 Walking  for peace Staff members of Catholic Charities’ Migration and Refugee Services and employees and residents of the Partridge Pointe Apartments walked with Louisville Metro Police Department officers, above, during a Peace Walk on Sept. 20. The walk was held at the Shively apartment complex, where many former refugees now live. Officer Lamont Washington, right, spoke prior to the walk and said the gathering was an opportunity for the residents to meet the police who patrol their neighborhood. Washington said, in light of the recent violence locally and nationally, he hopes the peace walk, and others like it that have been held around the city, helps residents and police “put energy into working toward a solution.” Record Photos by Jessica Able
