Hard Choices: Jason Irby – Awareness, Wellness, and Choices Fair to Stop Violence

On June 14, 2014, author Jason Irby hosted the Awareness, Wellness, and Choices Fair at Laman Library – Argenta District. The fair was to promote his newly released book Love Within Life: So You Want To Stop Violence and to encourage our youth to face life’s “hard choices” by making wise decisions.

Irby requested that the sports leagues and sports entertainment organizations join the effort and cease the use of Hip-Hop music containing inappropriate messages. These messages promote getting high, getting wild, and getting wasted and are used in bumper music, promotional media, playlists, and cross promotions.

Irby was joined at the fair by community leaders and organizations. Presentations were made pertaining to the well-being of today’s youth and surrounding communities.
