Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs will join with a diverse group of people from across Milwaukee tomorrow (Saturday, May 21, 2016) for the 2016 International Stop the Violence Prayer Walk (also called the IP-Walk).

Participants will assemble beginning at 11 a.m. at King Solomon Missionary Baptist Church, 2375 N. 4th St., with the prayer walk set to begin at noon. A block party at the church will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and there will be a program at the church beginning at 1 p.m.

Alderwoman Coggs said the walk participants will stop at 1 p.m. in unity to pray for peace and for the victims of violence. “The mission and purpose of the IP-Walk is to pray for peace in our streets and unity, and to stand together no matter our color, race or religion,” she said. “I believe the walk, and the prayers, are needed more than ever in Milwaukee at this moment.”

The IP-Walk will be held Saturday, in some manner, in many nations across the globe, including Nigeria, Sir Lanka, Ghana, Pakistan, Malaysia, Uganda, United Arab Emirates, France, Zambia, Ivory Coast, India, Malawi, Tanzania, Kenya, Tunisia, England, Cote D Ivoire (Ivory Coast), Italy, Thailand, Pretoria, South Africa, and Canada.

The Peace for Change Alliance (PCA) is sponsoring and helping organize tomorrow’s IPWalk events in Milwaukee. Other sponsors are King Solomon Missionary Baptist Church and Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin
