The stories of gun violence in Toronto are often dominated by media images and representations that feature police, yellow tape, chalk markings and bullet casings, followed by a weeping parent who cannot explain what has happened to her child.  This panel will paint a different picture, highlighting some the significant work being done across the city in the fight against gun violence and its residual effects.On this final day of The Zero Gun Violence Movement’s 90-day summer campaign, we honour and celebrate the incredible commitment and effort of individuals and organizations engaging youth across the city who are affected by violence, in an effort to create a positive impact in our communities.
