In 2010, Silence the Violence and Shun the Guns was launched in Toronto, Ontario, Canada with the intentions of making an impact in North America. In 2011, items were created for sale to raise money to execute the necessary work. Money generated from the sales of the ever expanding Silence the Violence and Shun the Guns’ product line and other sources, has been and will continue to be used to continue raising awareness, branding, the promotion of our solution, but not limited to, youth employment, sending out teams of people going to all schools offering mentorship opportunities, followed by awarding scholarships and to fund other planned and proven strategies to insure local communities that are in need are educated and supported on how to become economically self sufficient. There will be limitations placed on the amount of time and financial resources allocated, but no less than what is that is required for these communities to take over armed with economic literacy and a successful recovery plan. Silence the Violence and Shun the Guns has been self funded from day one and continues to be self funded to this day. Currently, the product line has increased to over 100 unique items. Years later, Silence the Violence and Shun the Guns is recognized as the dominate leader in reducing youth gangs and gun violence by introducing and applying innovative, proactive and common sense solutions. A few of these solutions includes encouraging adequate education, mentorship, employment opportunities to marginalized youth and awarding scholarships. With a growing following, mainly in the Toronto downtown financial district, our team has expanded our awareness efforts outside of the G.T.A. and even outside of the province. "Social and economic exclusion leads to poverty and poverty leads to avoidable crimes." Yes, youth gangs and gun violence can be noticeably reduced if we as a society face the facts, pulls together and takes appropriate action. Silence the Violence and Shun the Guns is committed to continue this work until the job is done.
