The National Summit on Non-Violence, will be convened by Black Women for Positive Change and the Summit Councilin Washington D.C, on August 22nd during the week of the 50th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King's March on Washington. At the Summit national religious and civic leaders will discuss violence-prone attitudes and behaviors of racial profilers, domestic and child abusers with the goal of finding ways to eliminate those behaviors to protect youth, and vulnerable individuals. We will also have a courageous conversation about our seeming acceptance of youth violence and injustice when victim and perpetrator are both Black. We are calling on parents, faith leaders, elected officials and mentors to help coach youth-and their parents, in conflict resolution techniques so, that all children and youth can walk to corner stores safely and feel safe in their neighborhoods. This is not a time to just talk about the problem-we must mobilize to "Change the Culture of Violence in America."

Black Women for Positive Change, (BW4PC) is a national civic network of volunteers that are partnering with faith-leaders to host the National Summit on Non-Violence, August 22, 2013, at Metropolitan AME Church, 1518 M St NW, Washington, DC 20005, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. BWP4C is also calling for elected officials to declare a "National Day of Non-Violence" on August 22, 2013 and for Faith Leaders to preach on Non-Violence during August and September 2013.
