GUNS DOWN MECHANICSVILLE

Our latest project focuses on Mechanicsville, a community that has been a gun-related crimes hot spot over the last several years. We ask for your active support to end gun-related violence.

This portion of our work was seeded by a grant from the Stadium Neighborhoods Community Trust Fund
The Stadium Neighborhoods Community Trust Fund was created by the City of Atlanta in 2017 after the sale of Turner Field and surrounding properties. A committee of community residents provides guidance and oversight of the $5 million fund. The fund supports projects and activities that benefit the Atlanta neighborhoods of Mechanicsville, Peoplestown, Pittsburgh, Summerhill and the portion of Grant Park comprised of the named streets in the Turner Field Neighborhoods Livable Centers Initiative (LCI) study.
