The NYC Sean Bell verdict, local rap artist J.Dot's death, treatment of Austin Scott in alleged rape case, Kari Holmes racial assault...
What do all of these things have in common ?
Each incident has made people angry and frustrated over the apparent belief that bias, racism, and misconceptions are no longer problems in the U.S. and/or in the Lehigh Valley.
They also represent the fact that senseless acts of violence are still being committed and must be stopped!
Please join us for the Allentown Peace March and Rally on May 6, 2008 at 3:30pm. It is time to expose the ugly truth about racial intolerance that is alive and well in Allentown, on both sides of the coin. It is also time to confront the violence that is still rearing its ugly head in our community streets.
We are calling everyone, from everywhere, to come stand side by side and represent your desire to live in peace, no matter what nationality or lifestyle your neighbor may be.
We will be meeting at 333 - 335 Hamilton Street (Catch 22) and marching to City Hall where there will be a moment of silence for all of those who have been harassed, victimized, and killed senselessly or due to their beliefs, lifestyle, or nationality.
