Rev. Al Sharpton has announced plans to relocate to Chicago to address and bring attention to the city’s gun violence crisis.

Sharpton vows to make the move in September, where he’ll rent an apartment and work with community leaders and organizations.

From the Huffington Post:

Sharpton told the Associated Press the idea somewhat mirrors what Martin Luther King Jr. did in the mid-1960s, when the iconic civil rights leader rented an apartment in Chicago.

“We don’t have all the answers, but we need to raise all the questions publicly and consistently,” Sharpton told the AP. “Consistent attention forces a consistent change.”
