Gun Violence Prevention Summit at Neighborhood House

In a city with a violent crime rate now in America’s top ten (Forbes Magazine), Milwaukeeans are all too familiar with gun violence. Teens and others in Milwaukee’s Concordia neighborhood, where a young man was shot and killed in broad daylight earlier this month, will gather with law enforcement to share concerns and advocate for an end to the shootings. Learn about local gang dynamics, how heroin is changing the drug trade, and how gun violence – and the silence around it – impacts young people.

Neighborhood House of Milwaukee teens will lead the community forum Silence the Gun: Violence Prevention Summit on Saturday, February 22nd,  2014 from 9am to 1pm. Safe & Sound Neighborhoods is co-sponsoring the event.
