Local organizations and Indianapolis residents gathered for a community meeting against gun violence Wednesday night. The purpose was to publicly discuss gun violence in the community, and how it can be stopped.
A weekend shooting at a Chuck E Cheese is what sparked the meeting as community members are calling for unity. Cease Fire Indy originally called for the meeting that allowed residents to share ideas on how to curb gun violence in the community.
One possible solution now has multiple local organizations, from youth mentorship to support for victims of gun violence, working together to make sure people are getting the resources they need.
