Mixed Unity, a youth coalition and movement of peers organized to prevent youth violence and promote peace in the county, will be holding its first Peace Summit from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at Montgomery College's Takoma Park campus.
Mixed Unity, which formed last year after the shooting death of a Montgomery Blair High School freshman, provides opportunities for youth leadership and community organizing to create alternatives to youth violence.
The morning session will focus on preventing violence among youth while the afternoon events will include dancing, an open mic performance and live music. For more information, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
