HANDS ACROSS THE CONCOURSE is a major event to unite Bronxites in opposition to violence.

On Sunday, April 14, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. will join together with thousands of community and clergy members 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.

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.
