Silence Is Violence

Spring City Walk Schedule

SilenceIsViolence City Walks is a citywide group of concerned citizens that emphasizes exploring the New Orleans cityscape on foot, with the hope of spreading a message of peace in our city. The City Walks seek to nurture solidarity among all citizens and assert a positive and safe presence on the streets. The group honors the strong, distinctive neighborhoods of our city, while expressing unity in seeking a safer New Orleans.
The Spring 2008 City Walks schedule (all walks on Saturdays):

  • April 5: Treme walk with the Social Aid and Pleasure Club Task Force
  • April 19: Uptown walk: National Crime Victims' Rights Week
  • May 10: Holy Cross walk with the Holy Cross Neighborhood Association
  • May 24: Central City walk with United for Peace in New Orleans

Full routes are posted each week at the SilenceIsViolence web site.
The Treme City Walk is a prelude to the New Orleans Bayou Steppers Social Aid and Pleasure Club annual second-line parade, to be held Sunday, April 6 at 12 noon. The City Walk route traces sections of the second-line route. Ernie K-Doe's is the home of the New Orleans Bayou Steppers. District Attorney Keva Landrum-Johnson will address members of the Social Aid and Pleasure Club community following the anti-violence walk this Saturday evening.
