Violence Intervention Organizations Come Together for Citywide Intergenerational Peace March
MILWAUKEE – City of Milwaukee Office of Violence Prevention, 414 Life, the Medical College of Wisconsin, and other local organizations will gather together on Saturday, October 16 at 10 a.m. for a Citywide Intergenerational Peace March to promote peace in the community and honor the countless lives lost due to gun violence.
“Everyone in our community has a role to play in violence prevention,” said Arnitta Holliman, Director of the Office of Violence Prevention. “Change comes when we heal ourselves and heal our community. And we need everyone’s efforts and everyone’s support for that.”
The Citywide Intergenerational Peace March welcomes everyone in the community who feels compelled to be a part of the solution. Those interested should meet on the corner of 27th Street and Burleigh Street where the march will begin. The route will proceed to Sherman Park, where a closing rally will be hosted with food and violence prevention resources available.
