We here at Communities Creating Opportunity would like to thank you for joining us last week to show our presence and concern for life within our city.

Missouri Governor Eric Greitens heard the voices of those who will be directly affected by government policy.

As we reflect on our NightLIFE peace march, a deeper understanding arises: that suffering and violence have existed for far too long beyond the invisible wall of prosperity within our city. The time to act has long passed, but today marks a new beginning, as we have refused to let the moment pass while idly standing aside.

For those who signed up during the march, we will be contacting you on how you can support the ongoing work of reducing violence in our communities, as well as future NightLIFE walks. Please also note that CCO will be offering community organizing training in April (date to be determined soon).

Join us as we continue our efforts toward the preservation of life and the vitality of hope. If you didn't fill out a card at the event, sign up here to stay informed and get involved in CCO's violence interruption and prevention efforts. Or contact Ave Stokes at avrell@cco.org.

We will no longer simply ask for change...we will act for change!
