Their follow-up album was 2005's In This Life Together—its title being a reference to Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee's 1998 book With Ossie & Ruby: In This Life Together, spawning the single "Where Would I Be (The Question)".

"The purpose of this walk is to encourage women and their families to take a stand against all types of violence, including domestic violence, gang violence, the unlawful use of guns, and various other violent acts that degrade and destroy our communities," says Ronell Guy, Executive Director, Northside Coalition for Fair Housing. She adds, "The Women's Walk for Peace gives us an opportunity to provide support and encouragement for those who have been victimized by violence or who have family members who have been victimized; and it also provides education and resources on violence prevention for individuals who want to become a part of the solution."

The women, families, and community organizations supporting the walk believe that together we can create a community culture of peace and non-violence based on an absolute respect for human life and human spirit.
