Think, Don’t Shoot!

Think Don’t Shoot is a youth organization and movement that seeks to encourage hope, provide positive guidance, and help youth cope with the psychological, physiological and sociological effect of violence and trauma. We are also dedicated to utilizing the scope of Post Traumatic Stress and emotional intelligence, while empowering those who have been victimized, educating those who will victimize and creating strong and positive community leaders.
