Save Our Children Peace March
Both national and local Justice Committees organized a peace march with Dylan’s Parents, MN 18 Clans, HAMAA, and Hmong Heritage in Wausau, WI. The turnout was unexpectedly high with over 1,000 participants, bringing much attention from the local community to the event. The peace march was to demonstrate justice for both Dylan Yang and Isaiah Powell.
The peace march did affect Dylan’s sentence somewhat. Judge LaMont Jacobson sentenced Dylan Yang to 13 years in prison followed by 17 years of extended supervision, but also gave Dylan Yang credit for the nearly two years he has been in jail awaiting his sentence. This is half of the jail time prosecutors wanted.
