A few hundred people turned out for the 40th annual Walk for Justice on Good Friday, March 30, calling to mind Jesus’ Passion as being relived through those suffering from injustice throughout the world. The group’s trek included stops at the Douglas County Jail, the Douglas County Courthouse and the Omaha-Douglas County Civic Center.
