The January anti-crime march in the NOPD Second District will begin and end at the Atkinson-Stern Tennis Center, 4025 S. Saratoga, pausing along the way to honor crash victim Mariah Woods.

Two Uptown neighborhoods that have suffered from fatal violence in the last month, Milan and the River Garden development, will host the New Orleans Police Department’s monthly anti-crime marches starting at 5 p.m. Wednesday.

The NOPD Second District march will begin at the Atkinson-Stern Tennis Center at 4025 S. Saratoga, where a group of Milan residents have begun meeting in an effort to reduce crime in the neighborhood. The march will pause at the intersection of Freret and Milan streets, where Mariah Woods was killed in a crash caused by a suspect fleeing police.

The Sixth District march will begin at 503 St. Mary St. and then fan out around the 1800 block of St. Thomas Street, where a man was killed Jan. 2 amid a rash of escalating gun violence that ended in the arrests of six people in an apartment.
