Hey all, if you are in the Bay Area, please plan on joining the
African American community leaders as they march for an end to
violence in San Francisco.

Last year, SF passed Oakland as the homicide capital of the state
with 88 deaths. This year there are at least 8 and possibly 10
homicides in SF. The majority of these violent acts happen in the low
income, African American and minority communities.

Progressive activists from other parts of the City are strongly
encouraged to attend to stand behind the mothers and families who
have been impacted by this epidemic. Our presence will help
spotlight the need for greater resources and responses to violence.
Please join us!

Supervisors Ross Mirkarimi, Chris Daly and Sophie Maxwell, and other
prominent City leaders will be there. SF musical phenomena Loco Bloco
youth drum corps will lead the march.

Dress warmly, and bring a candle for the vigil if you have one.

A CALL FOR PEACE on our streets Now!!!

For more information or to confirm your organization's participation
contact C.L.A.E.R. Project at 333-1017.

DIRECTIONS: Since public transit to this area is very limited (an
example of how few resources the area is allocated), it is acceptable
to drive and we have arranged for ample parking across the street
from the Childcare Center. Carpooling is strongly encouraged.


Public Transit: Balboa Park BART, take the 29 Muni up Persia to
Sunnydale Ave and exit there. The McClaren childcare center is about
a block up the street (Walk East, up the hill).

Driving: From 280, take the Ocean Ave exit to Mission Street and turn
Right onto Mission. The next street is Persia, turn left there and go
up Persia until you get to Sunnydale Ave. Turn Right on Sunnydale and
go East, up the hill. You will see the staging area and parking.
