Community members march and dance through Treme during a pop-up second line on June 15, in protest of Mayor Cantrell’s plan to move City Hall adjacent to Congo Square. The second line was organized by members of the Save Our Souls Coalition, including the Ole & Nu Style Fellas and Treme Sidewalk Steppers, which are two of the largest social aid and pleasure clubs in the city and were founded by Treme residents.
