All people from all races are invited to participate in tomorrows rally Yes We Care an anti-violence protest against the killing of young black men -- that will take place in Armstrong Park, starting at 10 a.m.
It is for the African American community, but theyre not the only ones invited, says Richard Weber, a spokesman for New Hope Missionary Baptist Church, which is organizing the event under the leadership of its pastor, Rev. John Raphael.
The event was planned and organized by black people in order to demonstrate the African American community as a whole is heartbroken over the murdering of so many and willing to standup against the violence.
Were hoping that ones that are concerned about it will show up, Weber says. Thats why were saying its not only for black people because Im sure there are some whites who are concerned about it also.
