Mayor Barrett to Host Ceasefire Sabbath Kick-Off Breakfast
May 12, 2015
Mayor Barrett and faith-based community leaders will gather Wednesday morning at the Salvation Army Worship & Community Center to discuss spreading a message of non-violence in the community during the weekend’s Ceasefire Sabbath that takes place on Sunday, May 17.
The Milwaukee Police Department will work to gather faith leaders to participate in its Pastors Academy, a program designed to better acquaint pastors with the practices of MPD. Additionally, information will be shared about how faith leaders can get involved in the Adopt-A-Block project and the Milwaukee Police Department’s Chaplaincy Program, which will be managed by the Salvation Army.
