(TriceEdneyWire.com) – Civic leaders in the U.S. and overseas are helping to launch the 4th Annual 2016 Week of Non-Violence, Justice and Opportunities, October 15-23, 2016, sponsored by Black Women for Positive Change (BW4PC) and the Positive Change Foundation.
“Over the past three years, we have organized events in 10 U.S. Cities and the United Kingdom, to promote violence prevention among youth, adults and law enforcement. This year we are pleased to see the network of cities expand to 16 cities to promote awareness of violence prevention,” Dr. Stephanie E. Myers and Virginia Delegate Daun S. Hester, National Co-Chairs of Black Women for Positive Change, in a joint statement. “Our goal is to ‘Change the Culture of Violence in America, and the World’ and we invite people of all backgrounds, religions and ethnicities to organize local events in their cities. Everyone must work together to help youth and adults learn how to resolve conflicts and manage their anger without violence.”
