Building Responsible Individuals Developing Greater Examples, or "B.R.I.D.G.E.," hosted a Summer Symposium to encourage teens to end gun violence. Burke County's Juvenile Judge, Douglas Flanagan, spoke to teens about how to report an incident and stay out of trouble. Beyond Judge Flanagan, the Sheriff's Department, the Prosecutor's Office, Paine College, and others talked to these kids on how to stay on track for a positive future. One of the teens who attended the Symposium, Keveunta Wright, says, "you know it helped me just by taking a step that I never took before."
