June is gun violence awareness month.
Stop the Violence 757 kicked off the month with its 4th Annual Bike Ride to End Gun Violence.
Monica Atkins created Stop the Violence 757 after her son Antonio Atkins was killed in 2014.
“We have to increase the peace here, not just in Norfolk and not just in the 757. But if we can spread the word throughout the black community, we can really stop the violence,” said DJ Scandalez.
Dj Bee with the Fresh Start Morning Show is well-known for his weekly bike rides starting as his record store Freshtopia. DJ Bee and Atkins led the seven-mile ride with about 45 to 50 riders and supporters.
