Dance artist Max Pollak creates international march against violence

Led by some of the greatest musicians, dancers and artists from all over the world, MAGNOLIA MARCH a traditional New Orleans – style funeral processional will organize on April 27th, 2013 in big cities and small towns throughout the US, Canada, Asia, Australia and Europe demonstrating peaceful solidarity against acts of violence.
Too often we are witnesses to violent acts that cost lives, and that have deep impact on us, and our loved ones.  Too often excessive violence is shown repeatedly through our media, and too often we are silent in fear, dismay and helplessness.
The MAGNOLIA MARCH is a chance for all of us to take a peaceful stand by marching in the streets of our cities and towns.  With a Second Line Parade, we can drown out the violence with music for sympathy, compassion and community.
The Inspiration
Outraged by the recent Sandy Hook shooting, NYC based tap dancer/percussionist Max Pollak felt compelled to create MAGNOLIA MARCH in order to provide the public, specifically families, children and artists, with an opportunity to mourn and come together to express their feelings and pay respect to those who have lost loved ones in recent acts of violence.
MAGNOLIA MARCH will honor the memory of victims lost to recent violence throughout the United States and other places all over the world.
On April 27, 2013 MAGNOLIA MARCH funeral processionals will take place at approximately the same time, in multiple cities, streamed live via
