9th Annual Peace Block Party

A note from Student Government: The Peace Block Party is an annual celebration where we, as a student body, try to tackle a social issue we see in our community. This youth-led event is structured to promote people of color and how people of color matter, especially among young people. We want to shine a little on the setbacks people of color have to face daily like discrimination, police brutality, and more.
