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.
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.
