iHeartmedia (formerly Clear Channel) Media and Entertainment’s top-rated Philadelphia radio station 9 FM today announced that Peace on the Street Jam, a series of three events that provides communities with resources to prevent violence and increase peace, will hold its second event Thursday, July 26 from 6-8 p.m. The event will take place in “Pink Elephant Park” also known as Robert Johnson Park in Camden, New Jersey and will feature a performance by Grammy-nominated recording artist Bei Maejor with a special appearance by Lupe Fiasco. Also performing will be local Camden artists Young Poppa and Ju-Taun.
Philadelphia‘s 9 has teamed up with Camden City Board of Education, Camden’s School Based Youth Services Program, Camden City’s Office of the Mayor and Camden Community Outreach Specialist Stan White to promote peaceful interaction within local communities to help stop violence. 9 and Philadelphia Futures, an organization dedicated to providing life-changing programs and resources to Philadelphia‘s economically disadvantaged, college-bound students, will award their second $1,000 scholarship to a deserving, high-potential scholar.
