Join Freddy Barton, Executive Director of Safe & Sound Hillsborough and Dr. Carol M. Motley, Board of Directors of the Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American Museum for an after show Talk Back on Sunday, February 18th.
The Hillsborough County Community Violence Prevention Collaborative (VPC or Collaborative) was created in the summer of 2013 as an initiative to transform the way local policy makers address violence. This initiative shifts policy from a public safety to a public health model and aligns community and professional stakeholders to develop a comprehensive prevention and intervention approach. Our vision: Working together to build strong families, safe schools and healthy neighborhoods.

The mission of the Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American Museum is two-fold:
1) To preserve, present, and interpret African American history and to engage a broad and diverse audience through these activities.
2) To promote an understanding among various groups that comprise the St. Petersburg community to enhance our ability as a society to respect, value diversity, and foster equal rights and social justice. For more information: http://www.woodsonmuseum.org
