Starting this Friday, July 12 at 1pm, we will begin day walks in East Oakland to stage another front against violence in our community.
In the summer months, there are always more people out in the streets and violence historically spikes. As a community of faith leaders, we want to make sure that we are building a culture of peace and healing in the community not just during the nighttime, but all the time.
The meeting spot for the first day walk will be at Union Baptist Church, located at 949 71st Ave.
Day walks will continue every Friday during the summer at different locations. The night walks will continue on Friday as scheduled.
