Northside Ministerial Alliance Stands Against Gun Violence with 3rd Annual Community Carnival

Graphic Packaging is honored to be a sponsor of this year’s Northside Community Carnival. The annual event is free to the public and intended to unify, engage and encourage Northside residents. In 2022, event organizers changed the theme to an Anti-Gun Violence Community Carnival to raise awareness and stand against the evolving issue of gun violence. The Northside Ministerial Alliance, which hosts the carnival, involves dozens of community partners and vendors across the city.  

The Northside Ministerial Alliance (NMA) is made up of more than 40 churches in the Kalamazoo area and has been operating in the city for over 40 years. NMA works to strengthen families and promote a better quality of life for all in Kalamazoo.   

We hope to see you at this year’s Carnival on Saturday, August 26!
