Word 4 Weapons is a multi-award winning, faith based organisation founded in 2007 by Michael Smith. The aim was to counteract the wave of knife and gun crime which is devastating our communities. There are now in excess of 37 knife bins across Greater London and the West Midlands.
"Weapons are openly used on our streets leaving individuals in fear, injured or killed. We are doing something different to bring back the true value of life to a society that is becoming numb to violent crime". Michael Smith
This event is produced in partnership with the Birmingham Empowerment Forum'sfounder, Desmond Jaddoo. BEF is an independent organisation set up to develop the voices of all the communities of Birmingham.
