CNV Memphis Forum on Gun ViolenceCampaign Nonviolence Memphis held a Community Forum on Gun Violence on Thursday Sept. 25 as their week of action continues. Memphis is ranked as the nation’s 5th most violent city, but plenty of people are working to change it, including these four gentlemen who comprised our panel: Stevie Moore of Freedom from Unnecessary Negatives, Elgin Tunstall, Violence Intervention Liaison at Regional One Health Center, Delvin Lane of 901 BLOC (Better Lives, Opportunities and Communities) and Bishop Mays, Jr., Director of the Memphis Gun Down program. Attendees heard from several other speakers representing community groups and city & county agencies.

Thanks to Cheryl Cornish and First Congregational Church for hosting us once again.
