BOROUGH PRESIDENT DIAZ TO JOIN ‘HANDS ACROSS THE CONCOURSE’
Major Event Will Unite Thousands of Bronxites in Opposition to Violence
On Sunday, April 14, thousands of community, civic servants and clergy members are expected to join “Hands Across the Concourse” in opposition to gun violence and domestic violence.
The event, which is co-produced by the Bronx Reentry Task Force and the Bronx Clergy Criminal Justice Roundtable, will see Bronx residents and other concerned community leaders join hands in opposition to violence along the Grand Concourse, between West Kingsbridge Road and Mosholu Parkway.
“This is a perfect event for our brothers and sisters in the Bronx to show those who continue to plague our streets with violence that we are not afraid to stand together as one family, one Bronx to put a stop to these senseless acts of violence. The Bronx has had enough, and we will continue to work towards a safer borough for those who live, work and raise their family here,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
Those participating in the event will begin to line up along the route at 3 p.m., and Borough President Diaz will officially join hands at 4 p.m. at the West Kingsbridge Road location.
