CLEVELAND, Ohio — Former Cleveland Browns running back and Hall of Famer Jim Brown Thursday joined in a meeting with local pastors to discuss a community engagement strategy to impact and reduce youth violence in the area.
The meeting was prompted by recent and “continuous” violence in Cleveland neighborhoods, according to a news release. It was held at 1:30 p.m. at Mount Sinai Ministries, 7510 Woodland Ave. in Cleveland.
“I know all of you that are ministers help people all the time, but I’m talking about a conscientious group of like-minded individuals that represent the clergy of this country, that represent the community of this country, that represent the business aspect of this country to come together and make a major difference,” Brown said.
