Heal Charlotte is a community organization created to support dialogue and relationship building between urban youth and families, the police, and other divisions of government, as well as, our community partners. Through the development of camps, training, workshops and community events, we strive to engage a diverse group of youth to create stronger neighborhoods and a better city.
Over the last 3 years Heal Charlotte Youth Camp, an after-school program working inside The Orchard Trace apartment complex has worked to create relationships with local police, provide a mentoring platform which offers tutoring and emotional support to children who would otherwise have very little support. We are proud of our accomplishments for youth and look forward to adding your support to the efforts.
This year we are working to set a new tone and address the issues related to gun violence Charlotte. In the year of 2019, there were more than 100 homicide events in Charlotte, North Carolina, leaving family members, loved ones, and our communities heartbroken and in need of urgent action. A disproportionate number of homicide victims and perpetrators were Black males between the ages of 18 and 24 years old. The homicide rate in Charlotte last year was twice the rate from 2018, a significant spike in violence that has not been seen here since 1993. The trauma that many of our communities have experienced due to these devastating events has sparked the need for change and healing. In response to this trauma, Heal Charlotte will work diligently to create community change through participatory and trauma-informed approaches that promote community and youth engagement, leadership development, improved governance, and capacity building all centered around the topic of gun violence prevention.
This year Heal Charlotte is committed to bringing together community members and stakeholders to change the paradigm, and advocate for peace and prosperity. In order to make this happen, we will bring together a number of stakeholders from the community that have an invested interest in reducing crime and violence to put on a city-wide violence prevention event, which we are calling the STV ( Stop The Violence) Summit .The vision for the event is a two day summit which will take place on April 3rd and 4th and will combine elements of arts, culture, entertainment, and education to bring awareness to the issues and provide solutions for change. The art and training showcased throughout the STV Summit will begin grassroots conversations among community members and advocates that will carry the mission of the Summit into the rest of the year and beyond.
Heal Charlotte has created a unique way for you to get involved and make a change.
