STOP THE VIOLENCE. STOP DOMESTIC VIOLENCE!!!

The posters stated everything from:

Visualize Nonviolence

Stop the Fists and start to Kiss

There’s no excuse for Domestic Abuse

Stop fighting and start a healthy relationship

A good amount of the mob were kids…the ones that will be taking over this world after the adults are gone!In the end, there was a lot of talking about nonviolence throughout the pier.A lot of people came up to one of the sign holders and asked how they could end violence in their community, their college, and their school.  In the end it always comes down to each one of us.
