The Y.O.U. MATTER March and Forum, is an event dedicated to YOUTH-ORGANIZED-for-UNITY.
It was created by a group of non-profit community service organizations, including Rays of Hope, hoping to create an atmosphere of peace between law enforcement, urban youth, and community leaders.
Join us as we march in unity on Dr. Martin Luther King Day and bring awareness.
The March, comprised mainly of youth, will start immediately following the King Day service at Cathedral International, 277 Madison Ave. in Perth Amboy, NJ.
The March will begin at The Cathedral International and proceed right to Smith Street. Following Smith Street, we will be making a right on to High Street and then walk to the City Hall circle. We are proposing a 30 minute time frame for civic, community and clergy speakers.
Following the speakers, we will convene the Y.O.U. MATTER March and Forum at the Family Life Enrichment Center at 272 Madison Avenue, where our youth will have an opportunity to speak.
Please note that this is NOT a drop-off event. Parent(s)/guardian(s) must remain with their children throughout the march and forum.
