At 1:30 The Peace Train Children's Choir will arrive at the Peace Wall steps in Downtown Berkeley's Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park to sing songs about peace, social justice and racial harmony. This Peace Train project will include over 100 diverse youth and adults from Oakland, Richmond, Berkeley and Sacramento, touring the East Bay on BART stopping to sing in schools and public places along the way.
The Peace Train is being organized by Alisa Peres, a Berkeley neighbor and teacher who was inspired by the original Peace Train in South Africa. According to Peres, "I saw the film "When Voice's Meet" about the Peace Train in South Africa, and thought what a wonderful idea to bring to the east bay to promote peace, social justice and racial harmony in these troubled times. "
Also, Councilperson Kate Harrison will speak prior to the Peace Train performance..
According to Councilmember Kate Harrison, "When I heard about the Peace Train, from Alisa, a Berkeley neighbor and teacher, I thought what an amazing initiative. We need to support the youth engagement, social equity, and cultural diversity of such wonderful programs, that make Berkeley and the East Bay such a great community."
