A special display of 13 billboards in Dayton will present a powerful message about gun violence.
The billboard campaign, scheduled for April 6 to 26, features images from the ʺKin Killin Kinʺ project by Dayton‑based artist James Pate.
The billboards are designed to expand awareness, inspire conversation and empower the community to participate in efforts to reduce gun violence. It is presented by the Community Initiative to Reduce Gun Violence, a partnership of the City of Dayton, the City of Trotwood and Montgomery County.
The Kin Killinʹ Kin project is a visually powerful and thought‑provoking art series created by James Pate from 2000 to 2010. It was created to encourage dialog between youth and community in search of solutions to gun violence and other black‑on‑black crimes in the community and nation.
Media representatives are invited to tour selected billboards with Human Relations Council staff. The guided tour will be held Friday, April 10, from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. Contact Erica Fields at 937‑333‑1403 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
