Violence Prevention Solutions:

I challenge you to design a community campaign and program that amplifies the existing strengths and beauty of New Orleans’ neighborhoods as a counternarrative to the historical spring and summer upticks of community violence.

Marlon Peterson

By bringing together unlikely allies, I challenge you to unleash peace to counter the culture of violence present in your community.

Eric Dawson

Tiger Alliance

Tiger Alliance will foster positive relationships between unlikely allies by coming together as one community and breaking down the negative stereotypes that divide us through our week of unity.

PEACE Agents of Change

PEACE Agents of Change will create a summit named Spreading Our Voice Against Violence by Knowing Our Rights. We will address root causes of violence such as mental illness, anger, misguided information, fear, police brutality, and gentrification in our community.

I challenge you to create a youth-led campaign — focused on equity and social justice — that demands a public-health approach to ending gun violence.

Rashaad Abdur-Rahman

J.M. Atherton High School

We offer enriching out-of-school activities that promote hobbies and peer-to-peer engagement and provide an alternative to violent culture.

Butler Traditional High School

We engage with our Butler community to help prevent gun violence, hate crimes, and social injustice and to promote a sense of safety and tranquility.

I challenge you to reimagine the use of digital tools that often amplify bullying and hate and use them to create online spaces of support, respect, and acceptance.

Randi Boyette

I challenge you to improve community safety and trust, in partnership with the Dallas Police Department.

Lonzo Anderson

S.T.P. will build bridges among the officers who keep us Safe, the community that Trusts us, and the students who have designed these Partnerships.

C.S.T. Squad
