Welcome to Wheelchairs Against Guns
Please excuse our appearance while we are under construction. The new Wheelchairs Against Guns website will be online shortly. But rest assured, we are still in the trenches, conducting anti-violence workshops and speeches at inner city schools and churches.
Our mission is simple:
Protecting inner city children from the dangers of bullying and gun violence by teaching them ways to avoid potentially toxic situations. This includes conflict resolution strategies, improved decision making techniques, as well as tips for building and reinforcing self confidence.
Help us in our fight against bullying and gun violence
