Tonight, Senator José Serrano is sponsoring a March Against Violence in El Barrio/East Harlem. Melissa has joined other elected officials and local organizations in co-sponsoring this event.
The march is aimed at denouncing violence in the community and encouraging the creation of more positive alternatives to violence for our young people.
To participate in this event, meet the Thomas Jefferson Recreation Center (1st Avenue, South of 114th Street) at 5:30 p.m. Marchers will depart promptly at 6:00 p.m. The march will end at 104th Street and Lexington Avenue.
Please bring photos and signs that illustrate a personal experience related to violence that you would like to share. We hope to see you there, rain or shine!
