On Saturday, August 25, 2012, the Escondido Police Department joins Victory Outreach Church, Resurrection Church, other local churches and community members and residents in a Peace March that will be held in Escondido.

The Peace March is intended to send the message that Escondido is a great city and our community is united! The march will also highlight the fact Escondido community members work together to reduce violence, improve neighborhoods and collectively create an even safer Escondido for our children.

The Peace March is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. in the parking lot of Victory Outreach Church located at 1131 East Washington Avenue in Escondido and conclude at Resurrection Church located at 1445 Conway Drive. Resurrection Church will be hosting their annual festival at the same location. Police Department Traffic Officers will escort marchers along the entire march route North on Ash Street to El Norte Parkway and then East to Conway Drive. Transportation will be provided at Resurrection Church to take marchers back to the Victory Outreach parking lot.

Event T-shirts will be available for $10 the day of the march at Victory Outreach where the march begins. However, if you don’t want to buy a T-shirt, we ask that you wear a white shirt to show your support.
