Here Are the Members of Mayor Fischer’s Violence Prevention Workgroup

Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer has appointed the members of what's now called the Violence Prevention Workgroup. The panel was announced last month after back-to-back shootings in the West End.

The group will first take count of all the youth services programs and charities in West Louisville. The next step is to create a crisis response team to help victims of violence. Fischer has asked them to complete these tasks by October. The group's first meeting is Monday, June 18 at 5:30 in Metro Hall.
