We did it!

We want to say thank you to the community and our sponsors. JetBlue, thank you for attending and sponsoring this years event. GreekTown Casino Hotel, The Skillman Foundation, Crime Stoppers and all the other sponsors. We couldn't have put smiles on over 60 children's faces and make them see that the community cares without you all. Maybe you donated to GoFundme, bought a toy, coat, gloves, hat or scarfs, we thank you. To our many volunteers, parents, friends and supporters we thank you. There was face painting, photos with Santa and McGruff the crime prevention dog. The Dj (Lisa Sol) piped out the music and the children danced and were entertained by a youth group known as Alnur African dance troupe. They were served a hot meal, given bags of candy, cake, and special desserts made by one our group members, Natalie Motyka.

Get On the Bus With Us

Standing for Peace and Justice Rally

Not just Detroit...Not just Black children...Not just Michigan!...Not just Black on Black crime....BUT THE NATION!!!! Homicide and violence greatly affect quality of life, both mental health and physical safety. Exposure to violence has been linked to depression, increased rates of aggression, other forms of anxiety disorders such as post­traumatic stress, and physical conditions such as asthma and obesity. Individuals who experience trauma, especially repeatedly, incur increased rates of medical and health care. The costs of poor physical and mental health – that is, increased health care costs are carried by communities with high violence rates, but are also shared by families and the nation as a whole. Even more expensive are the costs of death – the loss of future citizens and would be fathers, mothers and workers. For most people in the metropolitan areas of the United States, gun violence is the most common source of violence and homicide. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention, killers used guns to murder 11,000 people in 2010 in the U.S., the latest year for which statistics are available. Twenty thousand others used guns to commit suicides that year and 73,000 were treated in hospital emergency rooms for gunshot wounds. Gun violence has claimed the lives of more than 30,000 men, women and children in recent years. Tragic incidents like Sandy Hook – which claimed the lives of 21 six­ and seven year olds, horrified the nation, but across the US, the lives of this many youth are being claimed every day by highly preventable violence. Doctors and public health specialist say gun violence is at epidemic levels, calling it a major public health threat. In addition, According to a 2013 report by The Children's Defense Fund (CDF) in 2010, 2,694 children and teens died from guns in the United States—one child or teen every three hours and 15 minutes, seven every day, 51 every week for a year. More than six times as many children and teens—18,270—suffered nonfatal gun injuries as gun deaths in 2010. This is equal to one child or teen every 30 minutes, 50 every day, and 351 children and teens every week. ‪#‎Getonthebus‬ ‪#‎WANMAD‬ ‪#‎MOTHERSINCHARGE‬ ‪#‎MOTHERSOFMURDEREDCHILDREN‬ ‪#‎MOMMASAGAINSTVIOLENCE‬ ‪#‎STANDINGFORPEACEANDJUSTICE‬
