BACKGROUND: It is in the spirit of support for healthy communities and concern for the well-being of our neighbors that the Buffalo-Niagara Chapter of the National Action Network (NAN) hosts its 6th Annual “From Homicide to Healing Ecumenical Prayer Service.” This event recognizes and supports the families of Buffalo homicide victims in an effort to promote constructive dialogue and ongoing encouragement for healing, and for those lives permanently altered by the loss of a loved one due to violence. This event is free and open to the public. We especially welcome family members and friends of homicide victims to attend as our featured guests. We will acknowledge the lives and legacies of the victims while providing support, motivation, and encouragement for healing. This event is made possible with support from Erie County Medical Center, Flora Buffalo, Attorney Rashied McDuffie, Lombardo Funeral Home, Community Health Center, and Upstate New York Transplant Services.
About the National Action Network (NAN)
Founded in 1991 by Reverend Al Sharpton, NAN works within the spirit and tradition of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to promote a modern civil rights agenda that includes the fight for one standard of justice, decency and equal opportunities for all people regardless of race, religion, nationality or gender. The National Action Network has made equal education a key civil rights issue of today with an agenda of improving educational opportunities for all students and closing the achievement gap for minority and underprivileged students. The mission is to create a dialogue between policy makers, community leaders, educators, parents, and students; and disseminating information and findings that will positively affect our schools.
