New nonprofit emerges to fight against violence
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “Homicide is the second leading cause of death among youth aged 10–24 years in the United States. Violence is also a major cause of nonfatal injuries among youth. In 2006, a total of 720,371 young people aged 10–24 years were treated in emergency departments for nonfatal injuries sustained from assaults. No state is immune to the devastating impact of youth violence.”
Killing is Wack! Org was organized by Charles Robb in 2007 as a movement to help the youth that are effected by senseless acts of violence, which have been a result of murder or incarceration. K.I.W has contributed to preventing violence among the youth through consulting and promoting through different entertainment avenues.
The movement was created from the pain of losing and seeing others who have lost lives through senseless acts of violence and to protect every human beings right to life.
The Killing is Wack! Organization is aware that we are unable to prevent or stop any acts of violence but our main goal is to promote life.
