     The Cost of Violence: A Community Response

Raleigh - March 26th
Durham - March 27th

Dorothy Johnson-Speight, Founding Director of Philadelphia-based Mothers in Charge, will speak on "The Cost of Violence: A Community Response" March 26th in Raleigh and March 27th in Durham.

Dorothy experienced the cost of violence firsthand when her son was shot to death over a parking space. She has networked with other mothers of murdered children to engage in smart and effective ways of responding to and preventing violence.

In addition, the talk will feature local advocates and family survivors of homicide and will lead participants in a conversation about the possibilities we see in our communities to address the impact of violence.

Join us! We're honored and excited to be a part of this event and would love your participation in crafting solutions for healing communities from the damage caused by violence.
