DIGITAL DESK: Miss. non-profit reenacts crime scenes at schools in effort to ‘Stop the Violence’
JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - A non-profit in Mississippi is fighting gun violence with a bold, visual crime scene reenactment at the middle and high schools.
Stop the Violence Mississippi organizes elected and appointed officials, such as police, a coroner, a district attorney, and others, then trains them on how to present the message to students.
The hope is for students to understand what happens after a crime, who is affected, and the importance of their choices.
In previous presentations, rooms were packed and the message resonated.
The organizer and visionary behind the project, Lisa-Williams Augustine, spoke with WLBT’s Sharie Nicole on our new digital desk.
