Let's come together to interrupt the cycle of gun violence in our community.
Beginning in June, we will be hosting a series of community discussions throughout the Philadelphia area. Community discussions are open to community members of all ages including youth, parents, neighbors, Y members, community organizers, community leaders, and violence interrupters.
Join us! We want to hear from YOU. Participate in our discussion as we focus on the following topics:
- How to reduce gun violence in our communities
- How to identify social and environmental barriers
- How to provide access to different paths for our youth to thrive
- How to get involved in the Y's new Gun Violence Prevention Program coming in July
Each event will have food, drinks, music, raffles, and more! Raffles will include Y swag, gift cards, and chances for a FREE Y Personal Training session, a FREE week of Y summer camp, or a FREE 6-week Y membership! *Raffles vary by location.
