On Saturday, March 27, from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m., Youth Pledging Peace (YPP) will host a free celebration that will include an unveiling of a remarkable mural at Cable Place and Ivy Avenue in Inglewood.   The unveiling is scheduled for 12:15 p.m. and is the latest of YPP's on-going unity building projects in the community that are designed to promote global peace.

YPP's extraordinary mural will include the All-America City symbol and environmental messages decorated with multi-colored handprints.  The mural symbolizes cultural unity and will be the highlight of a day of celebration that will include music, dance performances, and light refreshments.  

YPP, which is comprised of Inglewood teenagers from different cultures, meets each week in Rogers Park to discuss critical issues in the community.  The year-old organization has dedicated itself to promoting understanding among various cultures in the City through dialog and innovative projects.

Previous activities that YPP has organized include a mini carnival and two "lock-ins."  The teens from YPP have been assisted in the mural project by local artist Michael Massenberg.  For more information about YPP, contact Etienne Graves at (310) 412-5286.
