Community March Against Violence - AmeriCorps

Subject: [From the Carrollton Riverbend Neighborhood Association] Community March Against Violence

Community March Against Violence
Late Monday night, an AmeriCorps member who had come to New Orleans to live and serve in the community was shot and killed in the Carrollton neighborhood. For those who are outraged by this and other acts of violence that occur regularly throughout our city, there will be a silent candlelight vigil and march to demonstrate our strength as a community and our support of those who dedicate their lives to service. The Community March Against Violence is a community solidarity event, not a memorial service. It will not be used as a forum for discussion, interviews, or speeches.
Those interested in attending should meet at the corner of Jeannette and Dublin Street on Sunday, April 7th at 8pm. The Community March Against Violence will proceed down Jeannette, turn right onto Eagle, and return towards Carrollton on Birch. Please bring your own candle.
For those of you who wish to attend but cannot, feel free to join in spirit by lighting a candle wherever you are.
For questions, contact Andreas Hoffmann at 504-342-4966
