Erie, PA, March 11, 2016– Eleven different musical artists will unite for peace.

Working with “Mothers Against Teen Violence”, these musicians will perform on Sunday, March 13 at Oasis Pub. The groups supports an undivided message: Stop the violence!

In 2010, City of Erie Council member Sonya Arrington’s son was shot and killed outside of a convenience store. She started the organization “Mothers Against Teen Violence”.

This association works personally with the youth in their time of need. MATV's sister program is “Leadership Empowerment Accountability Diversity (LEAD)" and this program helps the youth between the ages of 10-18 through the power of counseling and mentor-ship.

“I tell kids all the time: no matter what you do in life, no matter how bad it is, you can always change. But change starts today. A lot of kids think things can never change. That’s just not true." Sonya said...

The 4th Annual Community Call For Peace will take place on March 13 from 4 to 9 p.m. at Oasis Pub 3122 West Lake Road, Erie, PA. Admission is $5 in advance and $6 at the door.

This event will feature food, drinks, and music from artists such as: Doc Proto, C. Brown, Matty B, Blues No More, JC Nickles, Young Skola, Carlos Ramirez, Abby Barrett, and so many more!
