(There are three great events happening today: a 2010 Census Redistricting Panel, an Occupy Brooklyn General Assembly on Franklin Ave, and the SOS Crown Heights Peace March).
I can't say it better than the folks from SOS Crown Heights, so I'm just re-posting their announcement here. If you live along Franklin and want to participate, the CHCA has registered to march as a group and will be leaving from the Crow Hill Community Garden (Franklin between Sterling and Park) at 5:30pm sharp.
Via SOS Crown Heights:
On Thursday, October 20th at 6 PM, join hundreds of members from the community in demanding an end to the violence, supporting all the victims of violence and their families, and celebrating the positive changes the community has made to reduce gun-violence.
We will be congregating on the north side of Eastern Parkway and Utica Avenue at 6:00pm, and marching on the sidewalk along Eastern Parkway to Troy Ave, from Troy marching to Sterling Place, from Sterling Place to Kingston Ave. We will be concluding the March with a ceremony around Brower Park.
We look forward to seeing you and all our community partners there. Register your group for the S.O.S. Peace March online by clicking HERE or print the form HERE and fax it to 718-774-5349.
Last year, hundreds of people came out for our Peace March. See some footage of the March below.
