"GUN VIOLENCE IN TORONTO AND ITS SURROUNDING AREAS IS AT A NEVER BEFORE CRISIS LEVEL IN THE SUMMER OF 2020 AND WE ARE NOW ON DANGEROUS GROUND."

Silence the Violence and Shun the Guns is, by far, the leading anti-youth gangs and gun violence organization in the world for the overall work that it does. Founded in 2010 and based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, the founder concluded that due to white supremacy tactics has caused and continues to contribute to the rising youth gangs and gun violence and urban poverty problem not only on Toronto, but across North America. The youth gangs and gun violence problem is a result of generations of systematic racism meaning the refusal to equally extend the the same attention and funding to those who are viewed as less than them. We can not continue to ignore this growing problem our this deliberate imbalance will negatively impact our society in many ways beyond our safety. The following statement is what we believe and our strategies was crafted to counteract urban poverty and it is working.: 

"Social and economic and exclusion leads to poverty and poverty leads to avoidable crimes." 

We at Silence the Violence and Shun the Guns also understands that in order to reduce the rising youth gangs and gun violence problem, the first step must be to counteract poverty. An economic stimulus solution for at-risk youth and the communities they live to close the wealth gap must be the first order to work towards closure. And steps has been taken whereby in 2019, we created over 1,000 wealth gap closing employment opportunities. In 2020, our goal is to create over 10,000 more wealth gap closing opportunities. Although these economic stimulus solutions thus far are historic, they are not enough. After people in these impoverished areas learn by Silence the Violence and Shun the Guns how to become economically self sufficient, the next step is to execute a complete economic overhaul of their community so that it is completely economically self sufficient by creating businesses and employment for the community residents and then reinvesting the proceeds for essential community related assets for example, affordable housing, community and recreational  centres. 

For quite some time, Silence the Violence and Shun the Guns' social media presence has been stronger than all other anti-youth gangs and fun violence and advocates combined, which would suggest that Silence the Violence and Shun the Guns is on the right track. The rich, the powerful, the famous and even legal and and law abiding gun owners have been buying our items for years to fund our social enterprise funded initiative. Silence the Violence and Shun the Guns is doing the work that apparently nobody else wants to do just like a champion who always finds a way to win. We must eradicate racism and defeat urban poverty if we ever hope to reduce youth gangs and gun violence. We must dismantle white supremacy. We must end anti-Black and indigenous racism. We must end white terrorism against non whites. We must examine everything white supremacists uses to control us and make the appropriate adjustments to create a level playing field and peace for all.

With the power of our collective signatures, we are asking citizens, especially wealthy citizens who for the most part has been silent, businesses, big and small corporations and all levels of governments to join us and encourage others to participate. We all have a role to play to reduce youth gangs and gun violence and urban poverty. Equal and ongoing funding for competent and 100% dedicated anti-youth gangs and gun violence organizations and advocates, that has demonstrated they have and can fund their own operating expenses, must be paramount for this counteracting poverty solution to be the most effective. Here's where you can find our more information and take further action now.:
