The seventh annual Rise Up March was held Wednesday, March 20 at the South Main Street School in Pleasantville. The students march on the sidewalks in the neighborhood surrounding the school before gathering on the lawn for an assembly. The march was started in 2013 in response to students concerns about gang violence in Pleasantville. This year’s event was themed, “Becoming,” after the title of the book by former First Lady Michelle Obama.
