Citizen Way Headlines Peace Starts With Me Benefit Concert


Jun 15, 2019 (1 month ago) |
NEW YORK: Come join the Peace Starts With Me Benefit Concert on May 25, 2019, 7PM at the Manhattan Center. Billboard charting Christian rock band Citizen Way and Stellar Award winner Jason McGee will be headlining the show.
All proceeds from the concert will go to the City of Refuge Ministries community engagement program. Seats are selling out fast so make sure to get your tickets today at putdownthatweapon.org.

In the wake of recent gang violence in Los Angeles, the concert's theme of Put down that weapon -- Pick up an instrument! is more relevant than ever.

The concert is part of the Peace Starts With Me rallies, a joint project of the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification (FFWPU) USA and the American Clergy Leadership Conference (ACLC). First held at Madison Square Garden in 2017, thousands of people from a wide variety of national, racial, and religious backgrounds gathered together to celebrate peace. This phenomenal event was repeated November 12, 2018 at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum and is now headed to Las Vegas on June 22 and other cities around the country.

Bishop Noel Jones, pastor of the City of Refuge Ministries in Los Angeles said, We live in a time when the inner city has been wracked with so much violence. So God has given us an initiative to pick up an instrument instead of a gun. What you're blessing us to do is to teach our kids.. To use [their] skills to enhance and embellish other people's lives instead of taking [them].

The concert will be in the Hammerstein Ballroom of the Manhattan Center. Doors open at 6:00 p.m., concert starts at 7:00 p.m. Additional acts include Sarah Eide, The Group Fire, Marie Della Thomas, and many others.
