About the event
Introducing Walt Patton, a true hero of Cleveland, Ohio, dedicated to reducing violence in our community. Raised in Cleveland's Central community, Walt witnessed the devastating effects of violence up close. Unfortunately, he also experienced its impact firsthand, leading to an 18-month prison sentence.

Furthermore, he created a vital resource center for the residents of the Central community known as the Club House Essentials.
