Peace is a state of being that calls for cohesiveness and not division. How could the City have an event called Peaceful Plainfield held at the library and neglect to at least invite the Plainfield Anti-Violence Coalition? An organization that’s been on the forefront addressing the issue of gun violence and finding solutions to stop it from infiltrating our community.
Often, you hear the slogan, ‘One Future – One Plainfield’. But shouldn’t we be asking, “Will there ever be a united Plainfield?” When the City neglects to ask any participation from the Plainfield Anti-Violence Coalition, much less formally invite them. Do they really expect us to believe in their slogan? And yet, they advertise that many community activists will be in attendance. Which community activists? Are they even aware of which community activists and organizations have been marching and rallying since the start of fatal shootings this year? Why do they choose to ignore a grassroots organization? Wouldn’t it be in the best interest of the City, that we all at least strive to work in unifying to combat a strong issue in our community?
We do not have any political agendas. Our agenda is that gun violence be taken seriously. We will continue to strive for peace, progress and prosperity for all.
