Our Purpose-Stop the Violence CU
Gun violence disproportionately impacts the African-American Communities. Most community gun violence is a highly concentrated within under-resourced city neighborhoods.
The focus of this event is to minimize harm to the Champaign-Urbana Communities by fostering stronger relationships between law enforcement and they people they serve.
This event is an intervention strategy, to create a safe and positive environment for youth within the C-U Communities. It will also bring awareness to other issues youth faces daily such as: Depression, Mental Illness, Suicide, Gangs, Substance Abuse, Domestic Violence and Teen Pregnancy.
It is our hope that something will be said to encourage youth to turn a negative into a positive.
Last but not least, agencies, social groups nor police can fight this battle alone, but if each one reaches one, it will make a difference in our communities.
If you have any further questions, please email: email@example.com or visit the website at: www.stoptheviolencecu.com
