I am putting on a stand up to knife and gun crime event called Jam Down to raise awareness of knife and gun crime in Birmingham. So many friends and family members around me have lost brothers, cousins, sons and friends to knife and gun crime and I thought it was time I created a film and event to address this. We always say mainstream media does not tell our stories or give them justice so I wanted to create a film that would allow the voices of real people who have lost loved ones to take up space and do justice to their stories. This event will feature special guest performers and Dj’s from the West Midlands. I hope to see you there as this is very meaningful to me.
