Aim4Peace receives donation from NAACP branch

The City of Kansas City, Mo., Aim4Peace program recently received a $500 donation from the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People branch number 4009 at the Algoa Correctional Center.

“Aim4Peace is a wonderful group whose views bring joy, the spirit of togetherness and goodwill to the Kansas City citizens,” said Jermaine Richmond, NAACP branch president.“We respect the fearless actions of your members to simply say ‘No More Violence’ to the gangs, and we look forward to supporting you.’”

The Algoa Correctional Center is a minimum security facility in Jefferson City, Mo., that houses more than 1,000 male offenders.

“The support of the NAACP, but especially from those who once caused destruction in society, is a joy,” said Tracie McClendon-Cole, justice program coordinator and director of Aim4Peace.

Aim4Peace is a violence prevention program that works in the community to reduce retaliatory and gang-related violence. For more information about the Aim4Peace program or how to get involved, call 816-513-7902, e-mail aim4peace@kcmo.org, or visit the website at www.kcmo.org/aim4peace.
