Robert Jamison Ministries holds gun violence forum with local government officials

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- As violence is on the rise in Louisville, church and community leaders say they can't just sit around and hope for a change. 

That's why Robert Jamison Ministries held a gun violence forum Sunday afternoon called 'Ground Zero: Getting at the Root of the Issue.'

Organizers say gun violence is a disease and they are working on ways to make a difference.

"We all know that diseases - they spread. And that's what this gun violence is doing and it's becoming so easy to get guns in our community," Yvette Goodwin said.

Local government officials were also present to discuss topics like economic development, community services and vacant properties.

The plan is to hold these discussions quarterly throughout the year.
