Pounding the Pavement for Peace



SilenceIsViolence, the Social Aid and Pleasure Club Task Force, and the Dumaine Street Gang Social and Pleasure Club will lead a “Walk for Peace” this evening through the streets of Treme. The event starts at 6 p.m., and is intended as a kickoff to the 4th of July weekend, celebrating culture and community strength. Organizers are asking that participants meet at the intersection of North Robertson and Dumaine streets, and the walk will follow a circular route through the Treme, ending at the intersection of North Robertson and St. Philip streets. Following the walk, the Rebirth Brass Band will perform at Tuba Fats Park.
