CLEVELAND — A large crowd dressed in white t-shirts embroidered with “Stand for Love” blanketed Cleveland’s Lorain-Carnegie Bridge with silence Sunday afternoon.

The event served as a peaceful precursor to the week’s expected protest marches scheduled on the same bridge. Amy Burns, of Mansfield, her husband and friend Nancy Wasen, of Ashland, joined in on the silent demonstration.
