Peace in the hood

No drugs & guns in our neighborhood

With the sudden increase of violence in the city of Detroit – like the church shooting, violence in the Detroit Public Schools, multiple homicides, bank robberies and retail hold-ups, Rev. Charles Williams, 25, founder of the Mary Terrell Council for Community Empowerment has launched the “Peace in the Hood” anti-violence campaign in an effort to get the community involved to help end violence in Detroit.

The Peace in the Hood Campaign is the ongoing project of the Mary Church Terrell Council for Community Empowerment. The Peace in the Hood Campaign is a comprehensive violence prevention/intervention project that strives to eliminate violence in Detroit.

The “Peace in the Hood” campaign needs your support.

“We want to encourage participation in this anti-violence campaign. We are in a crisis and want the Community to take action to help to end violence. We believe in the African proverb, ‘It Takes a Village’ to end violence in our community”, said Rev. Williams.

In addition, Rev. Williams invites all local religions, organizations, corporations and neighborhood groups to partner with the “Peace in the Hood” campaign. Organizations that have signed on as partners for the campaign are:

NAACP State Conference, Rainbow/Push, National Action Network, The Mayors Office, 14th District Young Democrats, Little Rock Baptist Church, New Galilee Baptist Church, Christland Baptist Church, Greater Mt. Tabor Baptist Church, St. Paul AME Church, Women Conference of Concerned Citizens, Bethune Community Council, DPS Parent Network.
