CHICAGO—Young people from Chicago and the surrounding areas are invited to attend “Stop the Violence, Increase the Peace.” Parents United to Build a Future for Our Children spearheaded by Sondra Muhammad is presenting the gathering on Sunday, April 24 at The National Center, headquarters of the Nation of Islam.

“I’m inspired to present these teachings of the Nation of Islam to our community, the youth in particular, because they helped me become the adult that I am by having that foundation of learning knowledge of self. The children have a right to hear who they are because they will benefit from these teachings,” she said.
