(WorldFrontNews Editorial):- Bronx, Dec 17, 2020 (Issuewire.com) – The New York Chapter of the United in Peace Foundation took to the Bronx’s street to protest gun violence and encourage peace. The Bronx march for peace ended at the Bronx Borough Courthouse, where Community and Faith Leaders from all denominations publicly announce their commitment to helping stop the bloodshed.
New York City Police Department reported there were 115 shootings last month compared to 51 in November of 2019. There is a surge of violence in 2020. Reverend Phil Hargrow is a minister at the Church of Scientology of Harlem. Rev. Phil led the march for the New York Chapter of United in Peace Foundation and stated it is our job to take to the streets to protest gun violence and promote peace. “We are not going to allow violence to become the new normal in our communities.”
Marion Frampton, President, TBS New Direction and organizers of the march, says, “We must do something about the violence because the Bronx is getting hit one of the hardest. We want clergy of all denominations to come together to bring attention to and help find a solution to this problem.”
Different organizations participating in the march were the Trinity Memorial Baptist Church, Interfaith Center of USA, Celtic Cross Old Catholic Church, United Christian Baptist Church, National Action Network Arts and Culture Committee, The Way To Happiness Foundation, Peace December, National Latino Peace Officers Association, International Human Rights Commission and African Diaspora For Justice.
United in Peace Foundation has established Peace Rides with biker clubs in and around Los Angeles since 2012. In 2017, the movement extended to New York, with a chapter formed in Harlem.
