"Stop It" shares with the community - Apr 12th, 2013 - Local

Thursday night those behind the "Stop It" Initiative met to share some of the ideas that the public has come up with to help decrease violence in Grand Rapids. Some of the key items included trying to further enhance relationships with the community and neighborhoods, get parents more involved, have more opportunities for youth, and improve gun intervention. They also feel it is important to provide more job opportunities for youthful offenders, make more resources available, and have churches get involved.
