On Thursday 2 December we remembered Jermaine Goupall, and heard about the Justice For Jermaine Foundation. Established following the loss of the life of Jermaine Goupall through knife crime, it works to positively impact the lives of young people and help prevent knife crime.
We heard about the programme that JFJ has created to be delivered in primary schools, and saw an example of its impact in a local school. JFJ is now ready to grow, with funding available to bring this project, the 10Rs, to schools in Croydon.
The evening was also deeply moving, with Tilisha talking about her brother, and a bereaved mother talking about the anguish and far-reaching effects of the loss of her son to knife crime. We so appreciate the honesty and courage of these women in sharing their experience.
