Miami, June 3, 2016- Following his recent, successful daylong forum on youth gun violence, Goals NOT Guns, and his related Goals NOT Guns 5K Run, Walk and Pedal event that has galvanized the community, Miami Commissioner Frank Carollo and Miami Dade College’s (MDC) School of Justice will release a report to the community on Tuesday, June 7, at 10:30 a.m., at the intersection of NW 1st Street and 10th Avenue, the site of a recent deadly youth gun violence incident.
“Back on April 7, at Goals NOT Guns, I pledged to make eliminating youth gun violence in Greater Miami a top priority. I also announced that all related efforts were only the beginning and that I would release a thorough report to the community in an effort to turn this serious epidemic around,” said Commissioner Carollo. “I appreciate the feedback and goals from the more than 30 agency heads who participated in Goals NOT Guns. I also appreciate the guidance and hard work of MDC’s School of Justice and its leadership. I know we are already removing the barriers and silos and that collectively we will make a difference.”
The report contains many key recommendations for government and stakeholders that have been gleaned from best practices across the country. It also contains goals from participants at the Forum which was held at MDC’s Tower Theater.
