I have seen a plethora of challenges on social media lately. From the infamous mannequin challenge and even one named after Shirley Cesar. Well, I am offering a challenge to all of the political groups in the city of Paterson. It’s called the Campaign 4 Peace challenge. Here’s how it works.
All of the PAC’s (political action committees) can create postcards, banners, billboards, yard signs and palm cards with a #Campaign4Peace slogans like: “Put The Guns Down” “Spread Love Not Hate” and “Peace Not Piece.” This challenge would be particularly impressive because it would prove that these groups care as much about putting effort into getting PEACE in the streets as they do when it’s time to get people to the polls.
It’s time to take an interest in making sure our neighborhoods are safe for our children to play in again. Put some of those political contributions to good use for a change instead just using them to print political signs which will only end up being recycled the day after an election.
SAVE our streets.
