The Newark Bears and Newark’s Enough Is Enough Coalition (EIEC) are teaming up to help put an end to violence.
In response to the rash of homicides and violence in the city of Newark, the Bears are hosting the second annual “Stop the Violence Day” at Bears & Eagles Riverfront Stadium on Sunday, July 29.
Beginning at 11 a.m., there will be a rally at Military Park, followed by a march to the Bears’ stadium. It will be led by Minister Thomas Ellis of EIEC and will arrive at the ballpark around 12 p.m.
Those who participate in the rally will receive a $5 food voucher with the purchase of a ticket to the Bears’ 1:05 p.m. game with the New Jersey Jackals.
The Bears and Ellis will host a press conference on Wednesday, July 25, at Bears & Eagles Riverfront Stadium to announce “Stop the Violence Day.” Family Cab of Newark—whose employee, Rochenel Guerrier, was murdered on July 7—along with a host of other groups, organizations, clergy, family members of victims and others will be on hand.
