The rally and parade began at KIPP DC Benning Campus and moved through Ward 7 to the Boys and Girls Clubhouse #14. Participants brought signs and memorabilia, and made their voices heard with homemade chants and performances. In total about 200+ community members joined us and rallied for an end to violence in our community.
Special thanks to our KIPP DC parent and activist Ms. Veda Rasheed for ensuring the second annual Increase the Pace Rally was a success! In addition, thanks to DC Councilmembers Vincent C. Gray and Robert White At Large, and Attorney General Karl A. Racine for their undying support.
