Young people are being shot, killed and injured at an alarming rate in the Denver Metro area:

Eight teenagers were shot and killed in Denver last year.  Teenagers accounted for 13% of all homicide victims in 2019, up from 4% just five years ago.

Four 16-year-old boys and a 17-year-old boy were shot and killed in Aurora in 2019 during an increase in fatal youth shootings that left as many children dead in the city as in the previous three years combined,  https://www.denverpost.com/2020/02/16/denver-aurora-youth-gun-violence-2019/

What exactly is happening and most importantly, what can we do to help prevent and reduce these tragic losses? 

Colorado Faith Communities United to End Gun Violence (CFCU) will host two Zoom meetings to inform our members about this issue and learn where help is needed as the basis for determining how CFCU members can be supportive.
