12-Year-Old Leads March Against Gun Violence & Drugs In Harlem

12-Year-Old Leads March Against Gun Violence & Drugs In Harlem

In this is episode of NewOne’s original video series “On The Corner,” we joined twelve-year-old Victoria Pannell, the National Action Network’s Northeast Regional Director of the Youth, in a march and rally in a Harlem neighborhood where gang, drug, and gun activity is rampant.

Dozens of Harlemites congregated at Wright Brothers Playground, a small park that has a reputation of being unsafe for kids, to denounce the illicit activities that go on in the recreation space.

National Action Network recently announced the national Shake-Off the Violence tour and coast-to-coast cease fire coordinated by NAN’s Youth Movement and the Youth in Action group.
