Hosted by Lissa Jones, “Urban Agenda” focuses on issues and policies affecting the safety and health of the urban community. Ellyse will appear to talk about her work with Faith’s Lodge’s Campaign L2V: From Victims to Victory, a groundbreaking effort she is spearheading to support parents and families who’ve lost children to violence.
Also scheduled to join in the conversation is Marsha Mayes, a Minneapolis mother whose three-year-old son was killed by gun violence the day after Christmas in 2011. Her son, Terrell Mayes Jr., was struck in the head by a stray bullet that came through the wall of his house after gunfire erupted in their north Minneapolis neighborhood.
“We want to engage the community by discussing the implications of violence in our neighborhood,”
While Wisconsin-based Faith's Lodge serves any families who have experienced the death of child, Campaign L2V marks the first time programming has been focused on death related to violence. The campaign will culminate in April with the selection of eight applying families for a stay at Faith’s Lodge the weekend of April 18-21, 2013.
