The immediate focus of the STOP THE KILLING INITIATIVE is to strengthen the
St. Louis community which is troubled by violence. To lay pressure on the minds of the community will encourage a visible environment which shows a collective force of united support from citizens, organizations, youth, and others to eliminate the devastation of violence and its impact. The goal is to empower residents to “Stop The Killing”: block by block, neighborhood by neighborhood by connecting people to the idea that coalition building of community standards for peace means that together we can foster respect, and safer communities for all.
The St. Louis Stop The Killing Initiative is a coalition of community people, organizations, youth, businesses, and others who are committed to violence reduction. TAKE THE PLEDGE. PASS ON THE MESSAGE. STOP THE KILLING. Community and personal involvement is a key to reducing violence in our community. Contributions both great and small are needed to make a difference.
