Atlanta City Councilmember Kwanza Hall invites Atlantans to join him, neighbors, and other volunteers for a grand community cleanup as part of his Year of Boulevard initiative.

At the start of the morning, TEDx Atlanta will present $20,000 checks to the directors of two summer camps in the neighborhood: the Operation P.E.A.C.E. summer camp, for kids and youth from the Bedford Pine community, and the Truly Living Well Urban Farm summer camp at the Wheat Street Urban Farm.  A third check will be presented to Operation P.E.A.C.E. from the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta.

Participants will meet up at 9:00am and socialize over coffee, juice, and Sublime Doughnuts in the parking lot of Fort Street United Methodist Church.

Among the organizations participating in the Year of Boulevard Community Cleanup: Atlanta Medical Center, Fort Street United Methodist Church, Atlanta Police Department Zone 6, Operation P.E.A.C.E, Truly Living Well Urban Farm, Fourth Ward Alliance, Central Atlanta Neighbors/ Fourth Ward West, Fourth Ward Neighbors, Fourth and Sweet Auburn Neighborhood District, and Keep Atlanta Beautiful.

I am appalled at the campaign. There are only African Americans on the billboards. As a non-African American, other races have been discriminated. This does not seem very neighborhood friendly. I understand by this information above that it will help kids and youth from low income families. Are they truly all African American?
