Ask ABC to change the name of its show.

Wilmington resident Sarah Green has started a Change.org petition to ABC television to change the name of its upcoming drama. Here’s part of what she wrote:

Wilmington, Delaware deserves a chance to overcome its challenges with violence. Allowing a nationally broadcast show to name our city “Murder Town” will cement our image in the local and national eye as a place of violence.

The Movement for a Culture of Peace would like to see the media become part of the solution to our city’s problems. You can add your voice to Sarah’s by clicking here. MCP friend George Higgins, executive director of the Delaware Coalition Against Gun Violence left the following comment when he signed.

The name should evoke hope coming from despair, and the story should depict those who are working valiantly to create a culture of peace and a role model to inspire others.
To learn more about Sarah Green’s effort, look at the News-Journal report. Thanks, Sarah!
