 NEW DETROIT SENDS 100 YOUTHS TO KING CENTER IN ATLANTA;
 DEPARTURE CELEBRATION AT PLYMOUTH CENTER SATURDAY, JULY 18
 DETROIT, July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Buses will wait outside of Plymouth United Church of Christ on Saturday night, July 18, to board the 100 young people who will journey to Atlanta for intensive training in conflict resolution at the King Center for Nonviolent Social Change. New Detroit selected them from about 400 who received preliminary training by King Center staff in two-day sessions in Detroit.
 The departure celebration, beginning at 6 p.m. Saturday, will set the tone for the week of training in Atlanta with freedom songs and readings. This is a joint ceremony with the young people departing on the fourth annual Freedom Tour of southern civil rights landmarks sponsored by the Michigan Coalition for Human Rights.
 "In Atlanta, these young people will improve their ability to use reason in place of violence in tense situations as well as in everyday life," said New Detroit President Paul Hubbard, "and they will pass on their training by presenting seminars to groups in schools, churches and Detroit neighborhood centers. We expect to reach some 20,000 young people with the message and the method of nonviolent conflict resolution as trained teams move through the community," Hubbard remarked.
 New Detroit's Project Director A. Renee Farris will accompany the group. "We selected young people in whom we saw the potential for constructive leadership and the willingness to go through a rigorous week of training," said Farris.
 Attendees range in age from 13in Detroit.
