At a recent book release, Irby was joined by community leaders and organizations. Nationally recognized North Little Rock Officer Tommy Norman, North Little Rock firemen Williams and Black, Pam Snell of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), Giselle Hudson of the Arkansas Health Department, and Darrel Evans of Seconds Protectors were among those who gave presentations at the release entitled: So, You Want To Stop Violence: Awareness, Wellness, and Choices Fair.
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.
