LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (News release) – Victory Over Violence will take its Victory Walk campaign to the city’s southwest side later this month. The community walk is set to take place Saturday, March 30.
The walk will begin at 10 a.m. It starts and ends at Southwest Community Center, 6401 Baseline Road.
The goal of the event is to support neighborhoods and bring people together. Everyone’s invited to join in for the walk. Following the walk, there will be a family-friendly event with free food, kids activities and giveaways.
The KARK/Fox16 Victory Over Violence campaign was formed in Feb. 2017 following the fatal shootings of two Little Rock toddlers.
The concept of the Victory Walk was developed after months of meetings and brainstorming with partner organizations and leaders from across the city. More than 2,800 people have attended Victory Walks since the first event in May 2017.
The goal of the Victory Over Violence campaign is to unite community groups and leaders and be a resource for reducing violent crime and changing lives through improvements in education, jobs, mentoring and hunger.
