Anti-violence expert to speak in Norristown



The Rev. Jeffrey Brown, a national youth violence prevention and community empowerment expert, will speak in Norristown on Thursday and Friday, Nov. 1 and 2.

The free community workshop will be held Thursday at the Montgomery County Public Library, 1001 Powell St., Norristown. The hours are 5:30-8:00 p.m.

A second will be held Friday at 329-351 E. Wood St., Norristown. The same hours apply.

The events are sponsored by the Norristown Weed & Seed Steering Committee and are aimed at Norristown community leaders and residents who may need training in community work.

Both sessions are free and open to the public.

Rev. Jeffrey Brown is founder of Rebuilding Every City Around Peace (RECAP). He’s also co-founder of the Boston TenPoint Coalition. He’ll facilitate the  training which is designed to help local leaders curb violence.

After the training session on Friday, there will be a brief "night walk" with community members, elected officials and faith-based leaders.
