What brings you here?
My neighborhood is highly impacted by gun violence. In my years working with youth in Dorchester, I was saddened by how normalized shootings, and even gun deaths, had become to them. I am involved in TNGV because violence should never be "normal" and the youth in my community deserve better. I am compelled to transform the narrative of gun violence by lifting up those who are working toward peace.

Engaged in remembrance of young people in my neighborhood who have been killed by gun violence.
