From Dr. Eddie Woods, Director of the LIFE Hope Center for a Safe Louisville:
The No More Red Dots (NMRD) initiative was developed to assist in the effort to reduce incidents of gun violence in our community. There are several facets to the project. Training young to make peace a first choice; gun safety for adult gun owners and street level intervention are the primary components. The people who do the street intervention are under the direction and guidance of Dr. Eddie Woods. We call them Street Peace Leaders/Interrupters. They are trained to do the work and are very effective in slowing down gun violence in Louisville. It would be hard to imagine the numbers of homicides without their work. Currently, we are shifting our focus to be more effective in 2015. To that end, we are recruiting Interrupters to help make Louisville a safer place. Persons (male or female) applying for one of these stipend positions, must be 21 years of age, no pending court cases, knowledge of Louisville neighborhoods and committed to a safer Louisville.
