Community Town Hall Meeting on Gun Violence: A Conversation with

TOLEDO: The second installment in a series of initiatives to get
the community involved with the City of Toledo to strategize
best practices in gun violence prevention will be a town
hall-style meeting at Woodward High School, 701 East
Central Ave., from 2
to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 15, 2021, JoJuan
Armour, commissioner of The Mayor’s Initiative to Reduce Gun
Violence, has announced.
“We will continue to work with the community on the root causes
of gun violence, something faced by all American cities,” Armour
said. “The community wants to move toward a safer Toledo and we
will get there together with a comprehensive
approach that addresses the root causes of gun violence as a
public health crisis.”
“During the first town hall, the community was asked to provide
their input, concerns, and ideas on how we can move forward in
working on the issue of gun violence in our city collectively
and inclusively,” he said. “That input was logged and will be
used as a tool to make sure everyone in our community has a
voice and can support this initiative for a safer Toledo.”
