ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) – Better Family Life will be holding a special event Saturday aimed at curbing the violence in the St. Louis area.

The non-profit will host a party in Forest Park with concerts and family activities starting Saturday morning. Event organizers hope “PeaceFest” will send out a message of unity and encourage people to take a stand against violence.  

Organizers said the event is a great way to focus on actions that will bring about peace in the community.

“That’s what I want to promote now, end of violence not hate, but communicating and innovating with our people and teaching our human race to communicate with each other,” said Angela Winbush, a PeaceFest promoter.  

Saturday’s event will begin with a 5K “On Pace for Peace” run starting at 8 a.m.
