    Check out the link above about our Silence the Violence march. Join us this year Saturday June 29th at 10am at Church of the Messiah. We will honor the innocent victims of gun violence as well tackle some of its root causes such as poverty, unemployment, drug addiction, and mass incarceration.
    After the march and rally there will be on the spot employment opportunities, information on home ownership and affordable housing, mentorship and summer camp for kids, and entrepreneurship opportunities for neighborhood residents. Highlighted on this day will be Young Empire Detroit. (YED) This is a collaboration of over 60 groups, individuals, and organizations who have come together with knowledge experience and expertise in creating businesses. Mentors are created from this to help young people become entrepreneurs. Also featured will be BLVD ( building leaders for village development) Harambee. This 5o1c3 specializes in entrepreneurship, job readiness, activism, and community development. At the event will also be support groups for families dealing with grief and organizations created after the tragic loss of a loved one to help others now being affected by gun violence. Community organizations and activist  from across the country will join us on June 29th. At 10am we gather for the rally. At 11am we march. At 12noon we network and strategize.
