Youth join the discussion on ending gun violence at second town hall in Toledo

Dozens gathered at Woodward High School on Saturday for the second town hall of the Mayor's Initiative to reduce gun violence. Unlike the first meeting back in April, this meeting included the youth, key voices who organizers say are needed to find solutions. During a breakout session, organizers asked youth participants what they are seeing in the community around gun violence. One teen responded, "friends dying." "We had kids that spoke highly of what they feel is needed," said Jojuan Armour, program manager for the initiative. "They spoke highly of what they're seeing, so we're empowering them to be part of the change." Armour stressed each event is set up to hear from every part of town. "Coming to the north side, they'll have their own themes," said Armour. "Because what you see at Woodward and at the north may be different than what you see at the south and the east."
