Leaders hoping jobs can help stop violence

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Days after a man was shot to death in West Louisville a rally was held with the hope to fight crimes with jobs.

Monday evening, several leaders joined together in response to the shooting of Donald Giles, 44, near Victory Park.

Louisville Metro police said Giles was found dead in his car just after midnight on Sunday.

Those who attended the rally were made aware of entry level jobs through the Brothers Helping Brothers Job Program. Minister Jerald Muhammad hopes the jobs will help the community, "We can't save everyone and not everyone wants to be saved. What we want to do is provide a way out for those who have a desire to change."

If you or someone you know is interested in the Brothers Helping Brothers Job Program you are asked to call Richard Whitlock at (502) 609-9877.
