Youthvision Virtual ‘Live In Peace’ Assembly

November 5, 2020

Youthvision Promotions will be holding a virtual ‘Live in Peace’ assembly with CedarBridge Academy and Saltus Grammar School students on Friday, November 6 from 2.00pm to 3.00pm.

A spokesperson said, “Youthvision Promotions would like to invite the public to join us on Friday, November 6 from 2.00pm to 3.00pm for our virtual ‘Live in Peace’ assembly with the students of CedarBridge Academy and students from Saltus Grammar School.

“The objective of this meeting is to exchange ideas in an open discussion with Bermuda’s young people and to highlight and reaffirm a message of anti-violence and tolerance within our community. This partnership with CedarBridge Academy has been months in the making, with a pre-COVID assembly and anti-violence grub day having been already scheduled.

“Youthvision Promotions’ mandate has always been and will continue to be to provide a platform for our community members to speak up and share their advice, experiences, opinions, and concerns, thus encouraging relationship-building networks with various personalities from different backgrounds.

“Friday’s ‘Live in Peace’ event will include a pre-recorded interview with an inmate who is currently serving a life sentence, poetry from inmates who are currently serving life for murder, including one who is serving a double life sentence, as well as a message from our director, Desmond Crockwell.

“There has been interest expressed from other schools to join in the conversation, with the opportunity for us to also host additional anti-violence assemblies and Zoom meetings. These engagements with our young people will allow us to further disseminate our anti-violence message throughout our middle and high schools.

“As part of our ‘Live in Peace’ campaign, we are looking to distribute up to 300 VISIONZ anti-violence magazines, of which we seek additional sponsors to collaborate with.

“To date, we have distributed up to 1,000 magazines, of which many have been sponsored; however, due to COVID-19, we have lost enormous financial support as many businesses and organizations felt the impact of the loss of revenue.

“We thank the Bank of Bermuda Foundation, Bermuda Community Foundation, the Bermuda Economic Development Corporation, Spanish Town’s Eugene Dean, and the Emperial Group’s Corin Smith for their continued support as they have been an invaluable resource.

“We wouldn’t have been able to get through the pandemic without them as we continued to conduct interviews and the planning for the Anti-Violence Expo at St. David’s Cricket Field held in September.

“We are appealing to socially conscious businesses who are in a position to provide financial assistance to please consider supporting the ‘Live in Peace’ campaign, in which at least two things are critical to our cause: consistency and collaboration.

“To attend our ‘Live in Peace’ Zoom event on Friday, November 6, join us here.”
