No longer can we hold in obscurity the hard bought-and-paid for knowledge obtained by the many of us who have walked in the good, lived the consequences of the bad or witnessed the fate of the ugly. It is the lack of this before-knowledge that many of our youth are caught up in acts of violence and destructive behavior. Our rescue must begin with consequential knowledge.
Help us tell your story, Before They Strike.
To ignite an active community concern that will move our city and state to address the challenges of our youth and confront the many negative influences of street survival and gun violence.
To rally and organize the mature adults of our society, to reveal to our youth the snares, traps, consequences and the escape routes from many of the conditions our youth find themselves facing today.
To challenge the negative visual and verbal street codes which require our teens to respond to conflicts with gun violence that almost always jeopardizes their personal wellbeing and disrupts their future.
To inject positive instruction from written and verbal knowledge that will reveal the snares, traps, consequences and escape routes from many of the conditions our youth find themselves facing today.
To plant hope for a more positive future.
