WVPI Violence Prevention Symposium

One month from today, I will be joined at the WVPI Violence Prevention Symposium by the family of Ryan Birse who was viciously shot dead by a co-worker on February 25, 2016.

Pictured: Ryan's step-dad Chris, his mom Karen, myself, Ryan's sister Rachel Birse and a family friend Orlando 2017.

Ryan is deeply missed by his family, friends and community.

From day one the WVPI has sought out the involvement of victims in our mission to educate and train that all violence - from harassment, assault, through attempted murder and murder is predicable and therefore preventable.
