The Movement for a Culture of Peace announces an open meeting on Saturday, Nov. 1, from 9:30 until 11:00 at Hanover Presbyterian Church. This is the first of a projected series of monthly meetings to focus the energy of the Sept. 27 march and keep us engaged in the work of building a culture of peace.
We invite all of our march partners to join us for a panel discussion by four organizations that are seeking to curb violence in Wilmington. You or your organization will have the opportunity to talk with these organizers and sign up to help.

What can we do to build a culture of peace?
At the recent The March for a Culture of Peace we joined our voices with those who came before to demand that the Wilmington Police Department institute a Homicide Unit. That Homicide Unit is now happening Our Call to Action also called for Safe Havens for our youth and other action items.
What else is needed? How can we help?
