A group of Evanston not-for-profit organizations has scheduled an event for Monday to promote non-violence in the community.
Diverse Evanston Walks United, as the event is called, has taken as its theme, “Hear the Echo: My Voice, My Community, My Future.”
It will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Jan. 21 at the Music Institute of Chicago’s Nichols Concert Hall at 1490 Chicago Ave. and will feature original rap songs, choreography, and dramatic performances created and performed by youth.
A free lunch and workshops will take place following the event from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the McGaw YMCA, one of the event co-sponsors.
Youth Organizations Umbrella, the Music Institute of Chicago, the North Shore United Way, the YWCA Evanston/North Shore, and Evanston 150 are the other co-sponsors.
The event is free and open to the public.
