Justice Luncheon

Safe City Mississauga is hosting its 13th annual Justice Luncheon on Tuesday, June 4, 2024.

Registration from 11:00am – 11:45am with the Luncheon beginning at 12:00pm. Location – Mississauga Convention Centre.

Funds raised from registration will go directly to supporting our programs and services.

The 13th Annual Justice Luncheon will be a discussion on Guns and Gangs Prevention.

“90% of male gang members are arrested by age 18; 60% are dead or in prison by the age of 20; and the average life expectancy of an active gang member is a mere 20 years, five months” and yet many choose gangs as a way out. But why?

KEYNOTE ADDRESS

JABARI LINDSAY

Preventing Guns and Gangs Violence

“A lot of gang members are disconnected from who they are. They search for themselves in gang life and through an identity as someone else, someone to be feared/respected for what they possess. At the root of that struggle is past-post trauma, social struggles, fear.”
– Jabari Lindsay

Jabari joined Peel Region from the City of Toronto bringing over 14 years of municipal experience. As the Manager, Youth Development, Jabari worked on the development of the Toronto Youth Equity Strategy (TYES) which was unanimously adopted by the City of Toronto as a five-year strategy to provide more accessible and relevant supports to youth who are most vulnerable to involvement in serious crime and violence.

Jabari is passionate and dedicated to providing overall delivery of income and social supports to the community and residents of Peel. He holds his Master’s in Public Policy, Administration and Law from York University and a Bachelor of Social Work degree from Ryerson.

Jabari authored the book Gangs: Deal With It, which illustrates that one of the best approaches to keeping kids away from gangs is to inform them about the realities of gang involvement before they are offered the choice.
