As everyone knows there has been a recent spike in violence in East Palo Alto. But people should also know that a number of young East Palo Alto community activists have come together as East Palo Alto Peace and Unity and have been formulating a constructive response: a large march and rally for peace and unity on Saturday, February 3rd from 10am to 2pm. The marchers will assembe at 10am in the Home Depot parking lot at Clarke and East Bayshore.
EPA Peace and Unity organizers are seeking residents of Palo Alto and other nearby communities who will come to stand with them in solidarity.
Problems of crime, drugs and violence, especially as they involve youth, impact the entire society and have dynamics beyond the usually low-income neighborhoods where the symptoms manifest. Please come to support your neighbors in East Palo Alto.
For more information, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org or read some of the recent articles on the www.epa.net community web site.
Thank you, Michael Levin, EPA.net Director
