IMG_8788Our relationship with the dynamo that is Anita Franklin began after Anita’s son, Antonio Franklin Jr was shot to death in Duncan Park on April 14, 2014.  Since that time, Anita has turned her sorrow into resolve, her grief into action and her loss into our community’s gain.  She has done this through multiple initiatives that have been sponsored by the Antonio Franklin Jr. Violence Intervention Project “VIP” which was started by Anita to honor her son’s memory while working to eliminate the violence that took his life.

The 2nd Annual Mr. and Miss. Essence of Lexington Pageant is another example of the positive impact Anita and VIP are having on our community.  Through her work with the children involved in this pageant, Anita is trying to build character and confidence to create positive role models and new options for our youth.

We are so proud to support Anita and her efforts to help all crime victims by reducing violence in our community.  If you want to support her too, here is where you can purchase tickets: http://lexingtonlyric.tix.com/Event.aspx?EventCode=896596
