4 Points of Peace

The “4 Points of Peace” Caravan (Honoring Rosa Parks & Hosea Williams) For Immediate Release: Originally planned for 11/12/05 as part of the 1st Annual Stop the Violence Expo-Atlanta, The 4 Points of Peace Caravan has been rescheduled to Saturday, January 14, 2006; to partake in the National King Day Celebration Weekend. It will honor the late Rosa Parks and be led by family members of murdered Georgia children and surviving victims of violence. The day’s events will start with a press conference and rally at 11am in Clayton County at the Sparkles Skating Center on GA Hwy 85 in Riverdale. The procession will then depart at 12 noon and will pass through Fulton, Cobb & Gwinnett counties; and as it approaches the last leg in Dekalb County, we will march together (All races, religions, cultures and persuasions) as a sign of solidarity & strength. We can no longer let race or religion prevent us from working together to save the lives of our children. The festivities include a special tribute to the many women who were raped and murdered in the Louisiana Superdome & Reliant Arena during the Hurricane Katrina crisis. Special invited guest speakers include elected officials, entertainers, celebrities and many surprise guests. There will be a Crime Summit & Youth Empowerment Workshop, a Fashion Show (featuring hurricane evacuees and youths from metro Atlanta shelters) and The Praisin’ For Peace Concert (which honors the late Hosea Williams) and will feature surprise appearances by some of the world’s most talented artists. Several issues will be addressed during the workshops; such as, domestic violence, peer pressure, youth unemployment and creating partnerships for our upcoming initiatives: The Steel-N-It Gun Recovery Program, College Student Clothing & Food Bank, Atlanta Youth Summer Job Program, The Stop the Violence Concert Series and The One Love Family Assistance Program. We encourage everyone to get on board early and be apart of these meaningful programs. So, come out on Saturday, January 14, 2006, and take a stand against violence, ignorance and oppression!!!! Let your voice be heard!!!! If additional information is needed or to pledge your support, please visit us at www.chestnutbrothers.com or call program coordinator Abdul Chestnut at 267.974.3388.
