A meeting between Stockton clergy members and the founder of Advance Peace met Tuesday to discuss the controversial crime prevention program. The program seeks to help people, identified by law enforcement as being likely to engage in gun violence, stay out of trouble.
“We’re here because we strongly believe that the people in the community hold the best hope to change the community. So we’re here marching for peace, for all of the violence to cease regardless of where it comes from. We want our city to be the amazing city that we know it can be,” Pastor Trena Turner, executive director of Faith in the Valley, said during the walk.
