Event Description

City at Peace DC uses the performing arts to develop the skills, talents, and confidence of young people to promote cross-cultural understanding, conflict resolution, and violence prevention. For the last 15 years, this award-winning program has worked with more than 1,000 young people to build trusting relationships, achieve artistic excellence, and create lasting change in the lives of participants, their families, their schools, and their communities.

City at Peace’s programming is thriving despite the fiscal challenges facing our country. (Just this week we are teaming up with with Metro Teen AIDS and Mayor Fenty’s 2010 Summer Youth Employment Program for a city-wide street theatre tour.) Our books, however, are hurting. To keep City at Peace thriving, we must raise $25,000 by September 1. JOIN US for a special fundraising event featuring City at Peace cast, staff, and board members.

Why: Because City at Peace needs you and YOU need a City at Peace

Snacks will be provided. All drinks are 1$ off all night Adams Morgan’s best hamburgers and pulled pork sandwiches are 2 for 1.

DC needs City at Peace. In 2008, nearly 4,500 DC youths were arrested for criminal activity and 92% of deaths of residents aged 10-24 were caused by homicide. DC’s high-school graduation rate is less than 50%. City at Peace participants are less likely to be caught up in violent crime, are more likely to graduate high school and to attend college. They also consistently report choosing career paths that, but for the program, they would not have considered within reach.
