Western Addition Peace Wall Celebration-Volunteers Needed

Saturday, June 9, 2007 we will be needing volunteers to help us at the Western Addition Peace Wall Unveiling and Celebration on Page Street, between Buchanan and Laguna Streets in San Francisco. We need volunteers from 10 A.M. to 5 P.M. The event itself will take place from 1-4 PM. We are looking for teens and adults, as well as seniors. Groups of families, teams, and employees are welcome. We need people to help with set-up, monitor parking, bounce house, gathering people to staging area, assisting captains, being greeters, and other tasks.

This event is an eight-year labor of love. Since 1999 churches, schools, and community based organizations in the Western Addition have been learning a peace empowerment process, and painting tiles of what PEACE means to each person. As a result of this project, children, residents, and seniors designed over 1,800 tiles that will be placed on the retaining wall surrounding the Daniel Koshland Community Park. The celebration will highlight this wall and be dedicated to families who lost their children to violence.

The PEACE EMPOWERMENT ART PROJECT is a direct, personal, and far reaching undertaking that will enhance the quality of life for generations in our community. We hope you can join us for the day and help to make this a successful and positive event.
