Many Abilene organizations are involved in the stop the violence movement. Some are very direct like the Guardian Angels who patrol the streets actively looking to stop violence and others simply give those threatened by violence a place to go where for a time, the violence can be ignored, if not forgotten. The Abilene Civic Center hosted both the extremes and the middles on Saturday July 17th. It was a time for learning and a time to enjoy a brief freedom from worry. There were too many organizations to list here but they joined with a common aim and goal.Stop the Violence.{{more}}Carver Youth Brittani Taylor, Chris Walker, and Asmine Lowry.
