MATV Calls for Violence to Stop in New Year

Mothers Against Teen Violence hosted an event to put a stop to violence in our area.

Mothers Against Teen Violence gathered together today to raise awareness against violence in our area. MATV founder, Sonya Arrington hosts the event every year to honor her late son, Steven, who was a victim of violence. Looking back on 2013 the city of Erie had a grand total of five homicides. A number that Arrington says is too high. District Attorney Jack Daneri attended the event to support Arrington’s efforts and says the work must continue to put a stop to violence right here in our area. Arrington says stopping the violence starts with the youth. She is continuing to build her lead mentoring program throughout the year.
