Local groups held a virtual discussion Thursday to find solutions for preventing gun violence in the Winston-Salem community.
Presentations from several nonprofits highlighted different initiatives to address socioeconomic issues and other root causes of crime.
The Women’s Gun Violence Prevention Coalition and Action4Equity led the community conversation.
The conversations surrounded equity and how local grassroots efforts can help address the growing crime problem. These include a program to help mentor youth and work with families who have been impacted by gun violence.
