After the tragic gang related murders of Jessica (age 9) and Jorge Cortez (age 16)in 1994, the Peace and Unity March was organized by the Watsonville Brown Berets to address the gang warfare going on in their community. Our march was to demand peace in our hoods and to educate our youth about their culture and true struggle for social justice. We believe that gang youth are our dorment warrior and once awakened, can be a vital force to create true social change in their communities. The march is historically lead by families of victims of violence and community members demanding an end to all violence including war and governement opression. Please join us in solidarity to help spread a powerful message to our communities.

Over the last 13 years, more than 75 residents of our community have
lost their lives to violence. When will it end? As a community, it is
vital to remain proactive and send a united and positive message into all
our homes and neighborhoods. Enough of the violence!

We need to make a
demand for peace and unity!

We cannot be waiting for the next victim of
violence!

JOIN US FOR OUR 13-YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF CHAMPIONING FOR PEACE &
UNITY!
TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR OUR FUTURE GENERATIONS!
