Tonight’s Parade of Peace was an overwhelming success.
Hundreds walked with 1st District N.O.P.D. officers and many more
came out of their homes to see what was happening.
Two bands showed up. The Warren Easton High School band led
the charge and the Young Pinstripes followed the crowd.
The two bands got together for an impromptu performance after the
walk while participants danced. Smiles were abundant.
The Faubourg St. John Neighborhood Association was well represented
with 7 members joining the march. In attendance were Ali James,
Dean Burridge, Pushpa Ramaiah, Mike Luke, Jim Danner, and Brenda
and Charlie London.
The Parade of Peace turned into a 2nd Line Against Crime. If you missed this 2nd Line Against Crime, you really missed a good one!
The Parade of Peace was an opportunity to bring diverse interests together walking toward a common goal – peace in our city.
The community sent a clear message that the 7th Ward supports the N.O.P.D. 1st District’s work to make New Orleans a more peaceful place.
