Some Syracuse residents are trying to focus the spotlight on poverty in the city.
More than a dozen members of some Syracuse churches marched through downtown during a busy midday, calling for more action to prevent poverty in the Salt City. Organizer Raymond Blackwell says there are three things that need to happen for Syracuse to lose the distinction of having the highest rate of concentrated poverty among minorities.
"One, is job training and job placement. Two, is fair housing policies, and three, is fully fund the public schools,” said Blackwell.
