Peace Week, is one of the most important and well-known events of the year in South Philadelphia. It is an opportunity to interact with community members, support parents that have lost children to gun violence and to provide free resources and exciting activities to engage and inspire both youth and adults. It is also a week of conversation around “next step approaches” to reducing gun violence in the city and improving the lives of youth and their families. In its 7th year, Peace Week’s draw has not only been its community connection and engagement but the man behind the mission BMe Genius, Community Activist and Founder of Peace Week’s sponsoring organization, Unity in the Community Anton Moore has always been at the forefront of change. Unity in the Community is a non-profit organization dedicated to changing the lives of those in the South Philadelphia area and it had done just that. With this years line up of exciting speakers, panel discussions and clinics, Peace Week is sure surpass expectations.
