Fresh off a great week of programming for "Arts to End Violence," which included a fantastic screening of youth films and a heartbreaking documentary (if you haven't seen it, Player Hating: A Love Story is as honest and thoughtful a look as you can find anywhere of the trials and tribulations that many people face in Crown Heights) at LaunchPad, SOS Crown Heights is leading "Save Our Streets Week" this week, culminating in a March to End Gun Violence Thursday evening. Complete info from their website is copied below:
The March to End Gun Violence is part of Save Our Streets Week, June 2nd - June 10th, a week of events to celebrate our accomplishments, identify the costs of gun violence in our neighborhood, and discuss the next steps in reducing violence in the neighborhood. Religious leaders throughout Crown Heights will commence and close the S.O.S. Week of Peace with “Worship Weekends” June 2-3 and June 9-10 by dedicating their religious services to nonviolence messages. Monday, June 4th will be “Virtual Peace Day” when we spread our message online, and on Tuesday, June 5th we will have our first Peace Games, a day of games for people of all ages in Brower Park, 4:30-7:00 PM. We will also screen Chisholm ’72: Unbought and Unbossed at The Candy Rush at 733 Franklin Avenue, on Friday, June 8th at 8:00 PM. Please see the complete schedule below. Please see more details on our blog.
S.O.S. needs volunteers to run this week of events. If you can volunteer at any time during the week of June 2nd - June 11th, please email Eliana at email@example.com.
