In the wake of Freddie Gray's death, members of Baltimore's Latino community plan to gather Wednesday evening in a show of solidarity with black residents.

CASA de Maryland says members will gather at 6 p.m. at the CASA Baltimore office near Patterson Park "to march for justice and pray for peace in solidarity with African-American brothers and sisters." They plan to walk toward St. Patrick's Church on South Broadway for a prayer vigil.

Faith and labor leaders also plan to attend, according to the organization.

"The murder of Freddie Gray is only the latest and most egregious act of a crippling criminal justice infrastructure that treats young African-American and Latino youth as presumptive criminals," CASA executive director Gustavo Torres said in a statement.

The group, which is the largest Latino and immigrant rights organization in the region, is part of a coalition that has called on Gov. Larry Hogan to convene a special legislative session to address police accountability, investment in urban communities and other issues.
