LOUISVILLE, Ky. - May 5, 2014 - PRLog -- Taking place during Louisville’s Festival of Faiths, @SpreadLoveLou is a city wide event series that promotes a dialogue about violence in the Louisville community.

@SpreadLoveLou is being organized by Lance G. Newman and I.D.E.A.S. 40203 with support of Anthony Smith, Metro Louisville Office of Safe Neighborhoods, Louisville Literary Arts and Nadus Films.
