Carrying signs saying, “Remember stolen sisters,” “Please pray to stop violence against our women” and “Justice for stolen sisters,” they are moving west from intersection to intersection.

Traffic tie-ups are expected during the morning commute.

A rally is planned for the intersection of Portage Avenue and Memorial Boulevard.
