Now more than ever, there is a need for change in our communities concerning the latest rash of serious crimes.
A group of concerned community leaders, business owners and residents will push that change this Saturday, October 6, during a “Stop the Killing, Start Living” rally.
The group Kingdom Network Empowering Communities is sponsoring the free rally, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the Evans High School stadium. Evans High School is located at 4949 Silver Star Road, Orlando, FL 32808. This is the 5th annual rally in the Pine Hills area in light of National Crime Prevention Month. It also comes less than a week of a robbery-shooting at a China Wok restaurant in the area in which a woman was shot and killed and other senseless crimes over the past several months.
“We no longer want the stigma of crime controlling our streets. It is time to make a change and bring everyone together…” the group’s website states.
You can take part in different ways as a business owner, church or individual. Mainly, show up, listen and respond to the speeches on crime prevention and get to know neighbors. Take in the live entertainment, as well as free food and drinks while they lasts.
