SYLACAUGA, Ala. – The Sylacauga Peacemakers and No More Tears non-profit organizations held their grand opening with the Sylacauga Chamber of Commerce conducting a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday, June 15.

Located at 915 N Norton Ave., this joint endeavor headed by Tina Sanders aims to foster peace, provide support, and empower individuals within the community.

The Sylacauga Peacemakers, driven by their motto “Let your dreams be bigger than your fears, your actions louder than your words, and your faith stronger than your feelings,” focus on building relationships and mediating conflicts to prevent violence.

Through mentoring, information gathering, and conflict intervention, they strive to redirect individuals towards healthy lifestyles and offer support to families in need during times of violence. Additionally, the organization educates the community on conflict resolution, violence prevention, healthy living, and restorative justice.

The Sylacauga Peacemakers currently consist of Sanders, Jada Thomas Combs, Charlesetta Dunklin, and Diana Thornton.

No More Tears, a non-profit organization based in Buffalo, New York, has traveled extensively to major cities across the U.S. including Birmingham and Mobile.

They provide support and nurturing environments for individuals facing various challenges, such as loneliness, traumatic deaths, domestic violence, and substance abuse issues. No More Tears empowers individuals to make responsible decisions and develop a positive attitude towards their lives, community, and family.

The grand opening event was met with enthusiasm from the community. Volunteer opportunities were highlighted, encouraging individuals to contribute their time and expertise to these worthy causes.

Included in these opportunities to contribute is the upcoming Juneteenth parade which will take place this Saturday, June 17, starting at 9:30 a.m. in downtown Sylacauga.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony symbolized a new chapter in Sylacauga’s journey towards peace, unity, and social well-being.

The Sylacauga Peacemakers and No More Tears organizations are now open to the public and eager to connect with individuals seeking assistance, guidance, or a sense of community.
