- Timothy Dawkins-EL/2013
It is time for us to unite and collaborate with one another so we can build a united front against gun violence.
There are many leaders currently working in their individual silos, however, uniting stakeholders will help create a strategic plan to achieve our overall mission.
We will mobilize the necessary committees to immediately take action and prevent continued gun violence.
Our amazing team of regular and part-time volunteers are committed to helping others. We take our convictions and turn them into actions. Think you would be a good fit? Get in touch for more info contact us via email or phone.
Our mission is to build a networking partnership with our community leaders. To form and inform our families of available resources and programs. We want to inspire and encourage leaders to organize, strategize and mobilize in unity and love.
Our vision is to change the culture of our community from gun violence to love. We are working with all organizations who are willing to work in unity and share the responsibility of taking our generation to the next level vision.
