Seating is limited (abt. 500). Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

Join TTP and community experts for an important discussion on personal accountability, courage and leadership.

Since the tragedy on Jan 8th many have asked the question, "What can I do to keep things like this from happening in our community?" We hope to have some proactive answers. Our experts will discuss practical ways that can can identify at-risk youth and other commuinity members and how to handle situations that may arise that may have been ignored in the past. We will try to fill in the gaps that the media, for the most part, let fall through the cracks in their rush to make this tragedy political.

The emphasis on this event is to heal and empower and, once again, bring truth and focus to the real and important issues that face our community.

We hope you can join us.

Statement

We are incredibly saddened by the evil and atrocious violence that was inflicted on our community this morning. The shooting of Representative Gabrielle Giffords and other innocent people is not to be condoned.

Our prayers go out to Representative Giffords and all of the people who were injured or lost today. Our hope is that as a community we can heal and help those who were hurt by this terrible tragedy.
