The Mayors Office in collaboration with OPD, H.A.N.D.S, Urban Shields Security, ONYX and the Bay Area Non Violent Communication organizations have been working together since the verdict to prepare for the sentencing of Johannes Mehserle. I am putting a call out for those who would like to participate as Peace Keepers for this very important event. It is important that we show our Youth, City and the World who will be watching that we can protect and police ourselves. We are in support of a powerful but peaceful Rally.
People will start gathering at the Frank Ogawa Plaza at 2pm for a live Art show and the program starts at 4pm. Between 5:30pm and 6:30pm they will march down to DeFermery Park on 16th and Adeline Streets. At this location there will be a Healing Center and a Cultural and Arts Celebration to honor Oscar Grant, which will start between 7:00pm and 7:30pm until 10:00pm
We are asking for Men and Women who are concern for our Youth and City to come out and be Peace Keepers. I am asking Volunteers to show up starting at 12:30pm on the 3rd floor in the Mayors Office were we will prepare for the rally, get instructions and pass out orange vest. You can volunteer as long as you want to. We really need a commitment from people to show up and to pass this information along to your various networks. If there are any questions or concerns I can be reached at 510-499-4367. We really look forward to seeing you and working with you.
