Guns Down LOVE up
PREVENTION. INTERVENTION. HEALING.
Founded in 2018, Guns Down Love Up (GDLU) was created to combat gun violence in the Twin Cities, AND to promote love and conflict resolution over gun violence in the African American Community.
Our organization encourages the community-at-large to 1.) Speak out against gun violence, 2.) Promote conflict resolution over gun violence, and 3.) Create safe spaces to bring awareness to the lasting impact and trauma of gun violence in the community to begin to heal.
Our programs address youth and community violence, focusing on prevention, intervention, and restorative practices within the African American community. Our efforts are focused on decreasing gun violence by increasing positive community interactions, conversations, spaces, events and creating programs that heal and prevent future retaliation. In addition, we work with families, community stakeholders, culture, and religious organizations in our outreach efforts to promote the message of ending gun violence and promoting love.
