[ARCHIVED] Update Meeting on Strategies To Address Gun Violence

Northeast Ward Council Member Barbara Hanes Burke is hosting a meeting at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 10, to update community members on the results of strategies recently implemented to reduce gun violence. The meeting will be held at the Carl H. Russell Community Center, 3521 Carver School Road, Winston-Salem. All interested city residents are invited to attend.

This meeting is a follow-up to the town hall meeting on gun violence that Burke held May 25. At that meeting, community members suggested strategies for reducing gun violence. Updates on the strategies implemented through July 31 will be provided.  

After the updates, community members will have the opportunity to ask questions and make comments pertaining to the data and information shared.  

At the town hall meeting on May 25, Burke shared that this would not be a “one and done meeting, and there will be a follow up.”  Burke stated, “This meeting is an opportunity to report the impact on the implementation of strategies to address gun violence.”  

Presenters will include Burke; Police Chief Catrina Thompson; Assistant Police Chief Wilson Weaver II; Sheriff Bobby Kimbrough; Superintendent Tricia McManus of the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools; Pam Peoples-Joyner, a community relations specialist with the Winston-Salem Police Department; Susan Frye, a community outreach specialist with the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office; and staff members of the Winston-Salem Recreation & Parks Department.
