Kick The Violence was developed in Washington, DC in response to the overwhelming increase of violent crimes during the recent years. There have been 90 homicides in the district in 2018 with over 50% occurring East of the River.
The initiative will kick off August 18, 2018 with the Kick The Violence Charity Kickball Game & #GOALS Youth Conference.
This one day event will honor the lives of victims lost to violence, connect inner city youth to inspiring mentors, and raise money in support of local families & organizations impacting the community.
