"You Can Speak For Me" hosts violence talk
COLLEGE HILL, Ohio (WKRC) -- A local community gathers to have a conversation about violence and how to put an end to it.
The group called "You Can Speak For Me" hosted a brainstorming session Saturday at Monet Hair Galley in College Hill. Concerned community members used it as an opportunity to talk about ways to reduce violence.
Hope Dudley started the group when her son was killed in 2007. His murder remains unsolved.
Hope said, "How are these guns getting in our neighborhood? I even heard that they have something called a 'community gun' where the young people hide the gun and anybody in the community that needs a gun can go to a separate area and get that gun. We need people speak out and say this person has a gun or I know this person got a gun. That way we can help try to get some of these guns get off the streets."
Dudley said she was having the conversation at a barber shop because they are the ears of the community. It's where many people go to talk about their problems.
