Video Report from Teen Empowerment's 2nd Annual Peace March!
On June 14, 2012, Teen Empowerment held its 2nd Annual Peace March. Nearly 200 people gathered at Wilson Foundation Academy on Genesee St. at 3:30pm to listen to speeches and watch performance pieces. A drum circle galvanized the energy and a spirited march moved down McCree to Jefferson, down Jefferson to Flint, and back up Genesee to the school. An ice cream social was held after. Specifically, youth organizers were speaking out against youth on youth violence--especially in the wake of Lawrence Richardson's murder on Dayton St. in Rochester, NY on April 9, 2012.
Below is the video report from the march.
