Project Hood Walk to End Violence
Spending 94 days atop a motel roof in the dead of a Chicago winter was only Phase 1 of Pastor Corey Brooks’ plan to build a community center. Now, he’s hitting the road.
The Pastor of New Beginnings Church of Chicago will walk across America in an effort to raise awareness of the epidemic of gun violence all over America and to raise $15 million to fund the Project H.O.O.D. Community Center in Woodlawn.
In Phase 2 of his effort, Pastor Brooks will walk from Times Square New York to the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA to raise $15 million dollars to build a community center where the motel once stood. Funds raised for Project H.O.O.D. (Helping Others Obtain Destiny) Walk Across America will be used to combat four societal ills as identified by Brooks: social, economic, educational and spiritual.
“We believe drastic things have to be done, and we’ve got to be creative if we want to eliminate violence,” Brooks says.
Project H.O.O.D. Walk Across America will take to the road by foot on June 5, 2012.
