Anthony Sturdivant (October 13, 2014)

City/Neighborhood: East Garfield Park

Anthony’s idea:

Think Before You Shoot: An organization and campaign that uses short films and student outreach programs to increase awareness of gun violence.

>> Anthony developed #TB4YS in 2011 after witnessing a robbery at a barbershop. “I decided to connect the feelings and intensity of those few moments with an effort to prevent the violence in our communities,” he said.

>> He hopes to expand the program statewide, and says, “Using my own story as a model, each student will learn to convey and present their own experiences, inspirations and fears through creative writing and the visual arts.”

About TB4YS

I am a screenwriter and producer from the west side of Chicago, Illinois who is ultimately looking to make a change through films. I recently started a short film mini series that will focus on promoting positivity around the world while asking for individuals to think before they shoot. I've always been someone who wanted to speak positivity into the world, but most importantly the youth. I want to get as many messages out as possible; these perpetrators electing to shoot with intentions on harming another are affecting the society as a whole.
