9th Annual Communities March for Peace
September 18, 2019
Specific event details to come in July 2019
HISTORY (CN: gun violence)
In 2010, two young girls were shot at through the front window of their Victor St. home. Both girls sustained injuries that they later healed from. However, the incident motivated community members to come together to speak out against the ongoing violence in the neighbourhood and work together to prevent similar incidents from happening.
The Stop the Violence March started in 2010 with multiple West End community organizations and community members coming together, took action, and embodied solidarity against violence. In 2011, the reactionary anti-violence march morphed into a proactive march for peace.
Since then, 250+ individuals, families, organizations, and communities annually show their commitment to community safety, connectedness, and hope for a peaceful and safer community and neighbourhood.
