PARIS, Texas -- A local church is aiming to cut down on community violence with a campaign event this weekend.
Paris New Generation Baptist Church on Lamar Ave. is hosting No More Violence, a group from Dallas aiming to teach communities the consequences of harmful situations and how to prevent those situations from happening.
"Any community is affected by violence, and one of the things we want to do is educate our young children on awareness and prevention. That's our ultimate goal: to change their lives," said No More Violence founder Patricia Allen.
The group is hosting a free workshop tomorrow morning from 9:30 to 12:30 for anyone interested in curbing violence in their community. The event is open to all ages.
