Stand up for peace on Wednesdays in Austin

Join Austin residents, businesses, neighborhood groups and the faith-based community tonight at 6 p.m. – and every Wednesday throughout the summer – to unite against violence. Meet at any one of six Austin corners as part of the 100 Blocks/100 Churches initiative.

March for peace Saturday

The march will kick off at 10 a.m. in the 4900 block of West Chicago Avenue. Ald. Emma Mitts, Congressman Danny Davis and Chicago Police Supt. David Brown will lead the march.
