Community Activist and Director of the Urban Resource Center, Terry McMoore, has assured the citizens of Clarksville and all participants scheduled to attend the July 24, 2007 “Stop the Violence Community Forum” that the forum is still on track.
Mr. McMoore also went on to encourage the community to be sure to attend both forums because Knowledge is Power and in times like these it is always a positive move anytime the community comes together for a common cause.
Dear “Stop the Violence Community Forum” Panelists & Participants,
This is just a short email to clear up any confusion that may have risen from the sudden announcement of a community forum that the Mayor and the City of Clarksville will conduct this coming Thursday. The “Stop the Violence Community Forum” scheduled for Tuesday, July 24, 2007 is still going to take place at the same location and time.
I applaud Mayor Piper and the City of Clarksville for joining in on this effort to educate our community about gangs and gang awareness. A wise man once told me that you can never have too much education and that “People Perish Due to Lack of Knowledge”. Well it seems that we, as a community, will be blessed with plenty of knowledge on this particular subject.
I would also like to recognize Ms. Linda Darnell whose concern and love for her community first brought this need to the Urban Resource Center and thus the “Stop the Violence Community Forum” was born.
See you all very soon at both forums and God Bless Clarksville, TN!
Terry McMoore, Director
Urban Resource Center
