The third Saturday of June for 19 years, WOW has remembered and celebrated the lives of our Flint neighbors who have lost their lives to violence. At the same time we have consoled and acknowledged the intense trauma that family and friends have continued to experience along with the loss of their loved one.
2021 will find WOW again hosting the March and Expo. Twenty years of ensuring that Flint does not forget, and that Flint is reminded of the violence that must be addressed in Flint.
It provides a venue and purpose for youth, adults, law enforcement, and many other partners to work together to heighten awareness of the need to address violence in the community. The Expo educates and strengthens individuals and families about community resources, inspires community compassion, and engages residents in actions to reduce violence in their neighborhoods.
We seek to engage, unite and encourage individuals and
groups from culturally diverse backgrounds to get involved
and to make a positive difference in someone’s life. Come with us to rally for peace, pay tribute to those loss to violence, build relationships and connect with others to decrease violence, increase safety and improve neighborhood conditions.
