NotInOurTwoTowns to hold discussion about recent violence and the continuing trend

SOUTH ORANGE, NJ — The NotInOurTwoTowns movement will hold a meeting at South Orange Middle School this Tuesday, July 12, to mourn the loss of the black lives taken through the past decades. Come enjoy a night filled with open discussion, youth empowerment and community strategizing. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the event begins promptly at 6:30.

Join leaders and CHS alumni Cory Hardy, Felisha George, Emanuel Grant, Sydney Scruggs and Alfonso Spottswood as they introduce their goals, get more in touch with the youth, and bring both towns together in love and solidarity.

At 7 p.m., the young adults will be split up into two groups to host an open mic in the cafeteria. While George leads and mentors the young women, her four male co-organizers will lead and mentor the young men. In that time the parents will remain in the auditorium and have the opportunity to voice their concerns and opinions on recent tragedies.

Update: This story was updated to reflect a change of venue. This event will now be taking place at South Orange Middle School, not at Columbia High School.
