Hundreds Join Wilmington March to End Violence

Posted by Ryan Hall

On September 26, 2014 Wilmington, Delaware held a “March for a Culture of Peace”

Campaign Nonviolence organizer June Eisley reports that it was a glorious day, filled with peace and love.  Turnout for the march was estimated to be approximately 250  people from all walks of life.  Many faith-based and community organizations from the city and outside the city joined together.   The t-shirts on the poles in the pictures represent those killed by gun violence in Wilmington from 2013-to date–39 total.

Over 40 groups co-sponsored this effort, and now our work will begin to work together to Build a Culture of Peace in Wilmington.
