AKAs Kick off Peace Campaign with Youth Summit

Seeking peaceful solutions to youth violence that has claimed the lives of teenagers and children in South Florida, the Gamma Zeta Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. is hosting a Peace Summit during the Martin Luther King Holiday weekend.

The Summit launches the chapter’s 40 Days of Peace Campaign. It brings together clergy, church members, law enforcement officers, youth group leaders and members, and two Broward County AKA chapters for a discussion and interactive activities to get at the root of the violence.

The event takes place 4 - 6 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 19, at Universal Truth Center for Better Living, 21310 N.W. 37th Ave. in Miami Gardens. The public is invited to this free event. Refreshments will be served.

Later, the sorority will plant trees in honor of Miami-Dade Public School students killed in violence over the last year.

Also during the holiday weekend, in keeping with King’s call for service, sorority members will create care packages to assist military families who have at least one member who has returned to the United States after being deployed.
