Sylvania's Main Street was blocked off for about an hour from 11 a.m. to noon on Sunday, to film a video as as part of the PEACE Project (Protect Every Abused Child Everywhere) program, in conjunction with the organization America's Pride.
The video featured a song and new music that will be used to encourage abused young people who need assistance to seek help.
America's Pride is a leading drug prevention team in the country and spreads their message by music.
The video was choreographed by Northview High School graduate Matt Williamson. The filming featured around 30 students, although locally around 1,000 students are part of the PEACE Project.
Bill Geha, who is the intervention and prevention coordinator for Sylvania Schools, is co-founder of the local drug prevention program that was formed in 1987. He said the video's message will be important.
“The purpose of this video is to tell kids that they don't have to stand alone. That there's always support,” he said. He added that he had high hopes for how the video would impact people both locally and nationally.
