In addition to this, the Philadelphia Antiviolence Coalition hosted a press conference in West Philadelphia last week in order to announce the formation of their city-wide antiviolence initiative. ODAAT President Mel Wells was present to speak on the necessity of a coalition such as this and to also highlight the close relationship between the PAVC and ODAAT. Together, our organizations will be working to end the senseless shootings and violence that dominates our communities. Also pictured are community activists and PAVC members, Bilal Qayyum, Taleah Taylor, Anton Moore, William Little, Simon "One Punch" Carr, and Mike "OG LAW" Tabon. The unity of this coalition will allow for their message to be spread and acted out across every corner of the city.
We hope to see you this Saturday for the "Show You Care" March and help ODAAT and PAVC to stop the violence tearing our city apart.
