The impact of the personal experience of violence from terrorism in San Bernardino to domestic violence next door & police violence in the streets.


San Bernardino is still healing from the 2015 Dec. 2 terror attack and the 2017 North Park Elementary School shooting. Domestic abuse and police brutality are also unfortunately still prevalent. This special Event will invite the community to weigh in on the conversation. Voices Against Violence contextualizes the impact of violence through reflection, conversation, and self-empowerment, highlighting the personal experience of individuals affected by violence.
