Love me or hate me, [gun violence] became a conversation in Atlanta.
— Mary-Pat

Tired of the constant gun violence in her community and the country, Mary-Pat started the Just Think Twice campaign, an initiative that uses graphic images to capture the attention of her peers to make them realize the devastating impact of gun use.

Next month, as part of our Duets series, Mary-Pat will be sitting down with former Secretary of Education and Managing Partner of Emerson Collective Arne Duncan in Chicago for a discussion on how young people, right now, are creating strategies for reducing gun violence and building lasting communities of peace.
