Thank You Crown Heights!

We want to thank everyone who came out and supported our first Peace March last night. We had over 200 people in attendance as we marched from Utica to Franklin down Eastern Parkway, broadcasting the message to all of Crown Heights that we must unite as a community to stop shooting and start living.
 When we reached the end of the march, all gathered together and listened to the words of community leaders, clergy, and family members who had lost loved ones to gun violence. Touching our neighbors as we grieved and re-committed ourselves to stopping violence in Crown Heights and beyond was a powerful reminder that bullets have no names and violence affects everyone.
 We hope to see you all at next community event against gun violence and again thank all those who came together last night.
