To respect their privacy and provide them a space where they feel they can talk freely, this event will only be open to people who are survivors of domestic violence, and their children. It will not be open to the media.

This meeting follows a series of public MVP forums across the community and an online survey allowing people to share their ideas and concerns about curbing crime in Macon-Bibb. More than one thousand people attended those forums and several hundred surveys were submitted. To learn about other upcoming events and to sign up and get involved, visit or follow the MVP: Macon Violence Prevention Facebook page.
