Dreaming Of Violence-Free Environment
Purpose: DOVE provides the community a way to respond to violence. The group gathers within 72 hours in response to any act of violence resulting in the death of a community member. The purpose of the gathering is to provide a place for the community to affirm its witness against violence and to express its sorrow at the loss of a life. In addition, the group advocates through education, support groups and other activities to provide solutions to violence in our community.
In remembrance of two young men that were fatally wounded, one on Monday morning April 2, 2012 in Valencia Park and the other late Tuesday morning April 3, in Mount Hope, DOVE will hold a vigil on Wednesday April 4th at 7:00 until 7:15 PM in the front parking lot of Our Redeemer Lutheran Church located at 1370 Euclid Ave., San Diego, Ca 92105. Please join the community of Southeastern San Diego as we pause to acknowledge these losses as a community and pray for peace.
