With Non Violence & Suicide Awareness As The Focal Point
iChoose2live partnered with Temple University and Her Campus Temple to bring light and awareness to students through art. Temple University experienced 5 suicides on their campus over the last few years, and Her Campus Temple President Jaimee Swift wanted to do something about it.
The event featured the presentation of iChoose2live’s Award Winning stage play, When the Smoke Cleared and spoken word performances. Mayor Nutter, suicide survivors, and mental health professionals also gave brief speeches. To close out the event, there were musical performances by Yazz the Greatest, Bria Marie, and Jade Alston.
