To combat gun violence in the community, last week the local branch of the NAACP and the political action committee held a program designed to help local teenagers build leadership skills. 

During the program titled “Be an Exemplary Follower to be a Better Leader,” Sharbrye Lewis, a 2021 graduate of Winston-Salem State University (WSSU), gave participants an overview on leadership skills to combat gun violence. A roundtable discussion followed where students had the opportunity to discuss a number of topics. Participants were then split into smaller groups with other volunteers, while enjoying dinner provided by Rock-N-Nard’s, a local caterer. After dinner, participants gave a small presentation on ways to combat gun violence.
