S.A.V.E. outreach team leads peace walk

NOW: S.A.V.E. outreach team leads peace walk

SOUTH BEND, Ind.---S.A.V.E., “Stand against violence every day,” is an outreach program in South Bend to end gun violence. They’re leading a peace walk in an effort to reclaim areas where gun violence has taken a toll.

The outreach program is on scene whenever gun violence occurs in the community and it helps people involved in gangs and gun violence to get on a better path.

It’s done through engaging with the community, extensive job training, evaluation, and job placement in the South Bend area.

Today the program is calling out its community members to walk from Martin Luther King Jr. Recreation Center on Linden Ave. to O’Brien and Linden St. where 21-year-old Keyontae Jones was shot and killed. Prior to Jones’s murder an 11-month-old baby was shot and injured in the same area.

 “We have been in an effective strategy with law enforcement, the community, and social services, working together to address the issue of violence in South Bend,” said Pastor Canneth Lee, Outreach Coordinator of S.A.V.E.

The peace walk starts at noon and goes until 1 p.m. today.
