Delaware’s celebration of Peace Week continues through this weekend.

302GunsDown is the primary sponsor of the “Bringing It Back to Peace” celebration in Wilmington Saturday.

Jea Street Jr. is with 302GunsDown, and calls the event Peace Week’s “grand finale.”

“The overall feeling that we want people to walk away with is the feeling of encouragement and love,” said Street. “We really do try to use culture as a weapon to fight against all of these ills we’re seeing in society. We use music to heal.”
