Gun Violence in Cincinnati, Part II: A Neighborhood Approach for Youth with Positive Results

Gun violence has cut short the lives of too many Cincinnatians. The pandemic saw a tragic increase in gun violence across the nation. Christ Church Cathedral supports an outreach Gun Violence Prevention Ministry that works with groups in Price Hill to curb gun violence and work with victims as they seek to restore their community and sense of self. At this Community Issues Forum, Jessica Polzin, Danny Burridge, and Jack Jose will describe a youth program at the Joe Williams Center run by Santa Maria Community Services that is helping to reduce youth gun violence in Price Hill. Santa Maria currently operates a variety of programs designed to build life skills and develop character for the youth in this area of the city.

Attendees will be invited to comment and ask questions. Join us online.


Community Issues Forum

People interested in issues confronting the Greater Cincinnati community are regulars at the Community Issues Forum, a long time initiative supported by cathedral’s outreach budget. Forums are held September through May,  generally held twice a month on Thursdays at noon.

Bill Woods and Ed Burdell are the Forum coordinators. They administer the program through their nonprofit, Applied Information Resources, Inc. 

Currently, forums are being held virtually. Programs include time for questions and answers.
