Pete, Shannon
Provides information on Hands Without Guns, a public health and education campaign designed to combat gun violence by providing a forum for positive youth voices. Building on the model of positive youth development, the campaign engages young people as violence prevention advocates in their communities. Through its media outreach, Hands Without Guns seeks to reduce the demand for guns among youth. Through in-school and afterschool workshops, young people are provided with the tools they need to be involved in all aspects of the media campaign, including the development and production of antiviolence materials.
