WATERBURY, Conn. (WTNH) — Calls for change are only getting louder as violence continues to plague communities across the state. The organization Ice the Beef brought the community together in Waterbury Sunday for a Peace March and Rally.
People came together to show support and pray in a time that’s been so difficult for many.
The ‘Stop the Violence’ march began at Tinker Elementary School; the rally was held at Duggan School.
Event organizers and community leaders are imploring everyone to do their part in this fight.
Darryl Copeland, vice president of Ice the Beef’s Waterbury chapter, said, “No matter what walk of life. No matter what denomination, we’re all in this together. This is our community, as a whole and we can only make a change if we make a change within us and coming together as a collective on the same page.”
There will be more events of this kind going on in the near future and they are encouraging everyone to take part.
