After this week’s series of tragic events, dozens of local clergy and faith leaders will walk the streets of Kansas City, MO, Friday night.
The community peace walk will run from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m.
It’s being held to address the violence within the Kansas City communities, as well as speak out against the unjust killings of black men.
Communities Creating Opportunity (CCO), Metropolitan AME Zion Church, and Rev. Ken McCoy will lead the walk.
It will start at Metropolitan AME Zion Church, 2828 Prospect, Kansas City, MO., and will head south on Olive or Park to 35th street and then return via Prospect.
“This proclamation of ‘sacred space, sacred lives’ for black persons within our communities is an act of solidarity with those who are victims of violence and those who are dehumanized by the systems meant to protect them,” organizers wrote.
Other groups attending the event will be Aim4Peace, Ad Hoc Against Crime, Concerned Clergy, and Mothers in Charge.
