First Annual BBQ In Effort To Stop Violence

The family of murdered youth, Tyrece Johnson, celebrated family, friends, community and youth-safety on Saturday, August 9 at Bayswater Park.

With the support of Sayahword Ministries and several members of Mount Carmel Baptist Church, food and refreshments were served to more than 100 people including about 70 youths.

Evangelist Sharon Johnson, mother of Tyrece Johnson, is planning to establish a community organization for families committed to combating youth violence in the community.

The organization will serve as a support group for family members and friends who have lost loved ones through senseless violence.

There was no music played at the event. Johnson wanted participants to focus on the importance and value of verbal interaction and dialogue.
