Peace and Non-Violence Committee Meeting at Fairgrounds Valley Housing Complex

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Community leaders come together three weeks after a shooting that killed a 20 year old.

The Peace and Non-Violence Committee met Tuesday afternoon at the Fairgrounds Valley Housing Complex on Rockford's west side. The group was formed about a year ago and includes representatives from a number of local groups and agencies by connecting the complex with the community the group hopes to make it a safer place to live.
