The Black Community Information Center Inc. Continues Mobilization of Afrikan/Black Men With Formation Of “Brothers For Peace”
Due to the high level of violence in the Greater Roxbury (Roxbury, Dorchester, Mattapan) community of Boston, MA, the Black Community Information Center Inc., in the spirit of the “Million Man March, called for the mobilization of Afrikan/Black men to hit the streets to stem the violence. After a few “think tank” strategy sessions involving some key men, a call was made with the formation of Pyramid Zone meetings, wherein “Brothers” could do work in the respective areas they resided in.
Preliminary Pyramid Zone meetings have been held (Roxbury, Dorchester, Mattapan locations) to give participants a sense of what the plan was. The effort has been named “Brothers For Peace” and is a general call for the “MEN” in our community to get
involved. As explained in the past, this is nothing more then getting back to the “neighbor to neighbor” spirit in our neighborhoods.
The next phase of the campaign is a recruitment drive to get “Brothers” out and involved in the neighborhood they reside in. The “drive” will begin with a series of Pyramid Zone meetings during the weekdays of September 10, through 12, 2014 . The meetings strategy wise will be similar in nature structure the plan is such a fashion that the actions will be in a coordinated fashion within the entire community. It is important that the “Brothers” who come out, attend meetings in the respective areas they live. However, if there is a scheduling conflict on the date of your “zone” meeting then you are encouraged to attend a meeting on another date during the week. We urge “Brothers” to plan on attending a meeting and along with yourself, encourage family and friends to share this information with others who could well be interested.
