Jawad Abdu and Paul Taylor created this program while in custody at Greensville Correctional Center. Abdu was released from the DOC two years ago and had been working on getting support for the program. He knocked on the right doors of Richmond Police Chief Alfred Durham and Richmond Sheriff C.T. Woody Jr, they both were interested and supported the effort promoting public safety with a goal to end violence in our city. We are promoting life-skills and values workshops. No gunshots!
