Kishwaukee Corridor Weed & Seed (KCWS) is organizing our second march to “Take Back Broadway” from the prostitution and crime occurring in the area. The residents, businesses and patrons visiting the Broadway Street area deserve to enjoy a thriving business district free from crime. This march is our second in what will be a series of marches held to show the entire community’s commitment and willingness to work hard and collaboratively to not only get rid of the crime but to offer outreach and assistance to those trapped in the vicious cycle of prostitution.   

The meeting place for the march will be Broadway United Methodist Church at 5 PM. If you live, work, shop or visit this area, please come and join us as we continue to work towards restoring safety for everyone in the Broadway Street area and in every part of the Kishwuakee Corridor Weed & Seed area.

Supporting and coordinating agencies of this march are: Kishwaukee Corridor Weed & Seed, Winnebago County Health Department, Rockford Police Department, City of Rockford, Representative Chuck Jefferson’s Office, ORCHiD 3rd Union College Neighborhood Association, THAT Place, Midtown District Association, Take It Back/Keye Malquist Neighborhood Group, South 6th Street Neighborhood Group, Coronado Haskell Neighborhood Group, Neighborhood Networks and Members/Residents of other area Neighborhood Groups and organizations.
