100 kick offIs it socioeconomic, maybe it’s a lack of education or workforce development? What exactly contributes to youth violence? For 6 years now, President Pro-Tem Jay Roberson has explored the answers to that with “100 Days of Nonviolence”. It’s an initiative that pledges nonviolence for 100 days from youth locally and around the country stressing the need for their input in solving the problem. This year’s campaign kicks off Friday Oct. 9. For more information about everything the Birmingham City Council is doing visit www.birminghamalcitycouncil.org.
