Children Killed By Street Violence (Updated 4.25.21)

This is a page dedicated to memorializing the young children lost to street violence, helping to provide financial support for grieving families, and to raise awareness of this horrific problem that exists in our communities that the media and BLM refuses to talk about.

Last year, 2020, AT LEAST 78 children were murdered in street violence. Those are the ones we know about. There were most certainly more that we missed. But, I implore you to look through these lists, look at each of these little faces, and recognize that they are gone forever because somebody else decided that their life had no value.

It is my sincere prayer that this will help wake people up and begin a national movement to end the senseless violence that is stealing our children’s futures. It has to stop.

This page will be regularly updated and I will include donation pages for the families as I find them.

If I have missed anyone, missing a GoFundMe link, or if a link is no longer working, feel free to let me know at leonydus@leonydusjohnson.com.

We have to do better.
