Hundreds of protesters calling for a $15 an hour minimum wage marched near the University of Rochester April 15, temporarily shutting down parts of Elmwood and Mount Hope avenues. The Rochester Alliance of Communities Transforming Society, a faith-based organization to which several local Catholic parishes belong, took part in the march, and many Catholics, clergy and women religious were on hand. The march and rally were part of a national effort to help low-wage workers. Hundreds of protests were held across the country the same day.
