In December, Movement for a Culture of peace will call attention to one of the Calls to Action made during its second annual March for a Culture of Peace in September: support for the revitalization of the William “Hicks” Anderson Community Center (#WHACC) at the corner of 7th and Madison Streets.
 Built in 1972 and later named for one of the Wilmington’s most prominent black community activists of the 1960s to 1980s, WHACC still provides vital recreational facilities for youth and services ranging from job fairs to computer education for the West Center City community.
As the only city-owned center of its kind, WHACC is in urgent need of renovation and revitalization. Several plans have been put forward to accomplish this. Come hear about these plans from three members of the community:
Shawn Allen, deputy director of parks and recreation for the City of Wilmington, the agency that operates the center.
Nnamdi Chukwuocha, member of Wilmington City Council and son of William “Hicks” Anderson
Kyrone Davis, local professional boxer who has trained at WHACC
The panel discussion and question period will be moderated by Chandra Pitts, director of One Village Alliance and Jeff Lott from First Unitarian Church.

We welcome your presence for peace and progress. Our presence is needed to show support for West Center City, which has been troubled by persistent violence in recent years.
