An important conference is taking place this weekend– centered on our young people and protecting them from gun violence.
Unfortunately, it’s become a reality in places that are supposed to be safe spaces for our children.
Dr. Quentina Miller Fields is the Director of Student Affairs for the Savannah Chatham County Public School System.
She sat down with us on News 3 Today to talk about the collaborative effort to promote violence prevention and positive social interactions in our schools and communities.
