Councilman Dee Andrews

As a part of the City of Long Beach Peace Week activities, Councilman Dee Andrews and the City of Long Beach Human Dignity Program are pleased to announce “Visions of Peace Project”. Entries will have a special reading on Wednesday, January 16th at 6:00 PM, at Martin Luther King Jr. Park, 1950 Lemon Avenue.

In an effort to lift the consciousness of the community about Dr. King’s legacy and principles, Councilman Dee Andrews, the Peace Week Committee, City of Long Beach Department of Health & Human Services, Long Beach Parks, Recreation & Marine, and the City of Long Beach Human Dignity Program are promoting more than a week of activities designed to unify the community. The Vision of Peace Project is an opportunity for the community to express their vision of peace through the written word. Submissions are being accepted for poems and short stories. “In this day and age we have many talented writers in our community and their expressions should be heard, especially if their works of art can end violence”, said Councilman Andrews.

The poems and short stories will be displayed at the 25th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Peace & Unity Celebration, as well as read throughout the event and at Peace Week events. There will be a special reading held on January 16th for those sharing their vision of peace. All ages are encouraged to enter a submission. Please email your entries to teresa.gomez@longbeach.gov.
