STOP OUR KIDS BEING KILLED ON OUR STREETS
In a short space of time, Stefan Brown and a few other core members have developed a campaign that has attracted over 5000 supporters and recently culminated in a petition being delivered to Downing Street during a rally where over 500 people attended. This new organisation, STOP OUR KIDS BEING KILLED ON OUR STREETS aims to bring communities together to protect our children and prevent future generations of young people dying at the hand of another, through gun or knife crime.
The organisation works in partnership with community groups in inner-city areas across London and other major cities in the UK. The aim is to promote community safety, reduce knife and gang crime and encourage young people, parents and local organisations to be empowered to support each other and build safer communities.
The African saying ‘It takes a village to raise a child’ is very apt and in this time of austerity, cuts in services, threatened cuts to police forces and high youth unemployment rates, this campaigns aims to raise awareness of the impact and issues of knife crime and help to co-ordinate a national campaign to promote peace on our streets.
