Austin residents and CAPs officers, including Christine Perez, gathered earlier this month to celebrate community.

More than 200 people marked the last Wednesday in Austin by coming together in prayer and celebration.

Hundreds of people met on corners throughout Austin every Wednesday night to bring together the community and take a stand against violence.

Austin residents prayed on corners every Wednesday in June from 6 to 7 p.m.

Tonight’s event, organized by the 15th District faith-based subcommittee, included performances by the Judah Dance Troupe from One Way Family Workshop Center and the New Saint Matthew Missionary Baptist Church Choir.

Ten local ministers and community leaders also were honored for their work on the month-long campaign, which was covered by AustinTalks and Chicago Public Radio. Look for a story from AustinTalks reporter Shardaa’ Gray in coming days.

More than 700 people participated June 23, meeting on more than 80 corners throughout Austin.
