April 29th - A Hope for the Future: Fight Against Gun Violence

AmeriCorps members at Porter-Leath will be hosting a free community symposium, A Hope for the Future: Fight Against Gun Violence. The event is open to the public with a focus on families with children ages 8 - 18 years old. A Hope for the Future will take place on April 29, 2023, from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM at the Porter-Leath & University of Memphis Early Childhood Academy at Orange Mound, 2869 Park Avenue, Memphis, TN 38114. 

This community-driven event is for parents who are tired of the gun violence that is affecting our city. Learn how to bring hope back to our communities by getting down to the root of the real reason why youth are acting out in violent ways. Multiple guest speakers and panels will discuss important topics including gun violence, bullying, and peer pressure. It is also supported by alumni volunteers of the Memphis Parent Leadership Training Institute housed at Porter-Leath.
