On Saturday, December 6th Campaign Nonviolence organizers and the Movement to Create a Culture of Peace met at the Episcopal Church of Saints Andrew and Matthew on Shipley Street in downtown Wilmington, DE for their second Ending Violence forum. They gathered to learn from experts about what is currently being done to end violence in their community. They heard from Patrice Gibbs (above), the manager of Wilmington’s Cease Violence Program and his associate Shawn Allen, Deputy Director of Wilmington’s Department of Parks and Recreation along with the Assistant to the Mayor. Other speakers included Richard Iardella, Liaison to Wilmington’s Department of Public Safety, and Dan Logan, Deputy AG and head of Delaware’s Crime Strategies Unit.
