We fled bullets in Somalia only to have our sons die on Toronto streets. We have to do something. We have no choice. If not us, who will?

In the summer of 2012, fed up with a rash of gun violence that plagued Toronto’s Somali-Canadian community, a group of concerned mothers came together with a simple objective: to stop their sons from dying.
Fueled by their passion for change, they formed Positive Change, an ad hoc advocacy group dedicated to addressing the root causes of violence in our city.
In just one year, Positive Change has become a leader in the fight against violence in the Somali-Canadian community. Through meaningful advocacy work with key allies in our city, Positive Change hopes to address a simple question with a complex answer: how did we get here?
