Stop the Killing, End the Violence records, 1982-2001
Box 592

Historical Note

Organized in the 1990s, the Stop the Killing, End the Violence program was designed to address the rise in gun violence and homicides in African American communities. It continued the drug and violence prevention work spearheaded by the Wings of Hope Anti-Drug Program and initiated several projects that worked to advance the nonviolent philosophy espoused by SCLC. One such project was the Gun Buy Back Program, in which SCLC secured funds from local businesses, churches, foundations, and other agencies to purchase guns from residents and youth. The program was managed alternately by Gayle Watts-Wiggins and SCLC legal counsel Roxanne Gregory.
