The choice is not between violence and nonviolence but between nonviolence and nonexistence.” - Martin Luther King Jr.

According to the Cincinnati Police Department, there were 2, 942 shooting victims and 400 homicide victims from 2010 to 2015. Gun violence and the trauma associated with acts of violence continues to impact our community.  This engagement seeks to raise awareness involving at risk youth and young adults, enhance understanding of choices and consequences, provide perspective to the ‘School-To-Prison Pipeline’, and explore sustainable solutions. 

There will be a brief screening of “Who U Gonna Serve?” presented by Aaron Pullins III, Founder of Men Involved and CEO of the APZ Group LLC, followed by a panel discussion of thought-leaders.
