New York. Please join our “Stop the Violence March” in memory of Akeal Christopher on Labor Day Monday September 3 rd along Eastern Parkway in Bklyn. Everyone will be gathering at Rochester Ave and Eastern Parkway 10AM promptly and march towards the Brooklyn Museum.
Akeal Christopher was born on July 10th 1997 and died on his 15th birthday from a bullet to his head; the crime took place on June 27th in Bushwick section of Brooklyn. Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of $12,000.00 reward for information leading to the arrest of the killers.
We invite concerned New Yorkers to wear something white to show solidarity with families who have lost a loved one due to gun violence. Please participate in this peace march.
Please join with us to help heighten awareness of the violence happening among the youths in many communities in New York, this will be the first of a series of marches we have planned.
When we as a community remain silent, we send a message to those misguided youths, that their behavior is acceptable.
Why should we as a community behave as if we are intimated to voice our objection against the destructive behavior of some of our youth?
We who know better should demonstrate against these killings and other behavior that leads toward our youth developing a criminal mindset.
We will be marching directly behind the Grand Marshals and elected politicians. All concerned New Yorkers will have an opportunity to voice their concerns at the “Akeal Christopher Peace March” because we will be far ahead of the “Parade of Mas Bands”.
