June 30th at 7 PM.
As you know the high rates of crime and violence in Duval county are undermining growth, threatening human welfare, and impeding social development. Indeed, it is unambiguous that crime and violence are a development issue having direct affects on human welfare in short term and economic growth and social development long term. One of the most flustering issues we are confronted with in today’s society is drugs, which is interrelated to crime. It is a truism that crime has a negative impact on legitimate business and investments. As crime increases, access to financing declines, spending on formal and informal security measures increases, and worker productivity declines. Moreover, fighting crime diverts limited economic resources from other critical human development sectors such as health and education. D.I.P. Foundation a 501(C) 3 charity on a mission to raise funds and awareness to fight against abuse, will be addressing youth violence, bullying, gangs, dating violence, theft, social media safety, substance abuse, self harm, and teen driving safety. (D.I.P.) believes that community education and leadership are building blocks to preventing violence.
