A CALL TO ACTION AND
SIMPLE WAYS OF HOW YOU CAN HELP

Since the brutal murder of my only son in 2003, I have been actively fighting against the escalating gang/youth violence in our city/province/country. This has involved raising awareness and meeting with our leaders, writing continues letters to our officials as well as meeting with the press. Again and again I have been informed by MPs & MLAs that it will take the "masses" to change our so called “Justice System” and our far too lenient laws.

This means we ALL have to UNITE and do our part,
take a stand and let our voices be heard...

"There is POWER in NUMBERS"
together WE the people can take back our city/province/country"

A must read Book for ALL Parents: "Gangsta in the House" written by Mike Knox **can be ordered online: http://www.gangguy.com/Gangsta.html

"Gangsta in the House takes the glamour away... it is both frightening and fascinating and should be required reading for all parents, police officers, social workers, judges, ministers, priests, rabbis, and educators." - Dr. Lynne W. Boyle, Detroit Public Schools

"Parents learn what gang leaders are telling kids in Gangsta in the House. We have more in common than we want to believe." - Detroit News

"Innocent victims are NOT in the wrong place at the wrong time, "criminals" are in the wrong place doing the wrong thing, all the time!" Together we can stop this!

Thank you for becoming part of the "Solution"!
